The conclusion of the Davids Commission (the Dutch enquiry into the war in Iraq) said, in its January 12, 2010, report: “Within the Dutch intelligence services, neither the AIVD (General Intelligence and Security Service) nor the MIVD (Military Intelligence and Security Service) possessed any significant amount of independently sourced information about Iraq’s WMD programme. Both services based their assessments largely on the reports of the UN weapons inspectors and information supplied by foreign intelligence services.”
