Congress: We don't know shit about Iran

Congress published a report saying that the United States has no intel on Iran:


WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. intelligence community is ill-prepared to assess Iran's nuclear weapons capabilities and its intentions for developing weapons of mass destruction, a congressional report said on Wednesday.

Noting "significant gaps in our knowledge and understanding of the various areas of concern about Iran," the House Intelligence Committee staff report questioned whether the United States could even effectively engage in talks with Tehran on ways to diffuse tensions.

The Bush administration said it was handling the problem.
Glad to hear it. I'm sure they'll have some sexed up slam-dunk evidence in no time. If not, there's no better way to get to know a country than to invade it.
