“One former CIA officer recalls a conversation he had in December 2002 with the chief of the Counterproliferation Division (CPD) of the Directorate of Operations, the unit within the CIA that was supposed to be in charge of recruiting spies and collecting intelligence on WMD in Iraq and other countries. The division chief admitted during the conversation that the agency ‘didn’t have much intelligence on Iraq WMD,’ according to the former CIA officer. ‘There were a lot of people who said we didn’t have enough intelligence,’ the former officer added.” [The 15th of the month used for date sorting purposes only.]
