According to the Silberman-Robb Commission’s report, which was released on March 31, 2005: ” ‘…CIA’s post-war investigations revealed that INC [Iraqi National Congress]-related sources had a minimal impact on pre-war assessments. The October [1] 2002 NIE [National Intelligence Estimate] relied on reporting from two INC sources, both of whom were later deemed to be fabricators. Once source–the INC source–provided fabricated reporting on the existence of mobile BW [biological weapons] facilities in Iraq. The other source, whose information was provided in a text box in the NIE and sourced to a *defector,* reported on the possible construction of a new nuclear facility in Iraq. The CIA concluded that this source was being *directed* by the INC to provide information to the U.S. Intelligence Community.’ ”
