NYT: INC & Ahmad Chalabi Provided Faulty Intelligence

HeadlineSep 29, 2003

The New York Times is reporting that the intelligence provided by Iraqi defectors connected to the Iraqi National Congress provided information to the U.S. that turned out to have little or no value in the lead-up to the invasion of Iraq. Defectors connected to INC head Ahmad Chalabi often invented or exaggerated their credentials to give the impression they had direct knowledge of Iraq weapons programs. The Times report is based on an internal study done by the Defense Intelligence Agency.
