“The [July 9] 2004 report on prewar intelligence of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence said that the CIA’s conclusions in the October [1] 2002 NIE [National Intelligence Estimate] classified report on Iraq’s illicit weapons were ‘either overstated, or were not supported by, the underlying intelligence reporting.’ (The committee gave, as examples, the CIA saying it was its belief that Iraq was ‘reconstituting its nuclear program,’ had ‘chemical and biological weapons,’ and was developing an unmanned aerial vehicle ‘probably intended to deliver biological warfare agents.’) ”
