The Associated Press reports:
A former Israeli intelligence officer [reserve Brig. Gen. Shlomo Brom] charged Thursday that Israeli agencies produced a flawed picture of Iraqi weapons capabilities and substantially contributed to mistakes made in U.S. and British pre-war assessments on Iraq.
General Brom is quoted as saying:
“Israeli intelligence was a full partner with the U.S. and Britain in developing a false picture of Saddam Hussein’s weapons of mass destruction capability.”
Brom attributes the passing of misinformation to “an inability to think clearly”, and a tendency to “overstate the threat”, but that seems fairly generous of him.
