US Intelligence as dumb as a doorknob

To colorfully illustrate just how collectively stupid the US intelligence community is at the highest levels, all one has to do is read the headlines from the 2005 NIE report in contrast to 2007. This is what we get with billions of tax dollars spent on intelligence, bottom line:

May 2005 NIE report: "We believe with high confidence that Iran currently is determined to develop nuclear weapons."

November 2007 NIE report: "We judge with high confidence that in fall 2003, Tehran halted its nuclear weapons program."
I am truly embarrassed for these folks, and for our country. Wouldn't it be far better to publish no report at all? It would even be better to publish a report that honestly states something like this: "We judge with high confidence that we don't have the slightest freaking clue what is going on in Iran despite the billions of tax dollars that we consume."

From the 'you cannot make this stuff up' category: White House Press Secretary Dana Perino has no clue what the Cuban Missile Crisis was all about...Good lord!

To understand another certain type of moran working for US intelligence, check out the post below:
