Those damned Iranians

Turns out the Iranians may have duped us into attacking Iraq. It does seem to have strengthened their hand.

Defense Department counterintelligence investigators suspected that Iranian exiles who provided dubious intelligence on Iraq and Iran to a small group of Pentagon officials might have “been used as agents of a foreign intelligence service … to reach into and influence the highest levels of the U.S. government,” a Senate Intelligence Committee report said Thursday.–McClatchy News Service.

Our geniuses often cite intelligence failures as the reason for September 11, 2001 and the Iraq War. Turns out they are right, but it’s not lack of intelligence, it’s lack of intellect.
