And now, ladies and gentlement..... this: Even Rumsfeld's own Web site admits they didn't know jack sh*t about WMDs, and altered the intel.... Is this the "slam dunk" they were talking about?: Simply the Worst http://www.nytimes.com/2011/02/13/opinion/13dowd.html?_r=1 Rummyâs memoir, âKnown and Unknown,â is an unnerving reminder of how the Iraq hawks took crazy conditionals and turned them into urgent imperatives to justify what the defense chief termed âanticipatory self-defense.â At âRumsfeld.com,â the author has put up an archive of records and memos. One, marked âSECRETâ and declassified last month at his request, is dated Sept. 9, 2002. That was after his P.R. roll-out to the March 2003 Iraq invasion was under way. The subject line reads âWMD.â Secretary Rumsfeld is sending a secret report that he received a few days earlier to Gen. Richard Myers, chairman of the Joint Chiefs, asking: âPlease take a look at this material as to what we donât know about WMD. It is big.â The attachment is from Major Gen. Glen Shaffer, then the director for intelligence for the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the secretary of defense, responding to Rummyâs request to know the âunknownsâ about Iraqi weapons of mass destruction. âWe range from 0% to about 75% knowledge on various aspects of their program,â Shaffer wrote. Unfortunately, the 0% had to do with actual weapons. âOur assessments rely heavily on analytic assumptions and judgment rather than hard evidence,â the report said. âThe evidentiary base is particularly sparse for Iraqi nuclear programs.â It added: âWe donât know with any precision how much we donât know.â And continued: âWe do not know if they have purchased, or attempted to purchase, a nuclear weapon. We do not know with confidence the location of any nuclear weapon-related facilities. Our knowledge of the Iraqi nuclear weapons program is based largely â perhaps 90% â on analysis of imprecise intelligence.â On biological weapons: âWe cannot confirm the identity of any Iraqi facilities that produce, test, fill, or store biological weapons,â the report said, adding: âWe believe Iraq has 7 mobile BW agent production plants but cannot locate them ... our knowledge of how and where they are produced is probably up to 90% incomplete.â On chemical weapons: âWe cannot confirm the identity of any Iraqi sites that produce final chemical agent.â And on ballistic missile programs they had âlittle missile-specific data.â Somehow that was twisted into âa slam-dunk.â You go to war with the army you have, but the facts you want.
