National Intelligence Estimate - Iraq

You can find a long excerpt of the NIE on NR's Corner.

I am really not interested although others seem to have a need to dissect it and use it for their own purposes.

The fact is that I have no faith at all in the ability of the Intelligence Community to provide useful analysis or guidance.

They failed to detect the 9/11 attack.

They wrote off Anbar province a year ago. Now it's a success story.

Their analysis has obviously been no help in providing us guidance in the war after 4 years.

The CIA appears to be institutionally opposed to the Bush administration and invested in failure in Iraq.

Sorry folks, your product is worthless and not worth reading. Events on the ground are the only thing that counts. Your guesses and mine, along with a couple of bucks will get you a coffee at Starbucks.
