One Little Mistake

The BBC tells us that the US Iran report branded dishonest:

The letter went on to brand “outrageous and dishonest” a suggestion in the report that he was removed for not adhering “to an unstated IAEA policy barring IAEA officials from telling the whole truth” about Iran.

The letter, sent to Peter Hoekstra, head of the House of Representatives’ Select Committee on Intelligence, was aimed at setting “the record straight on the facts”, the IAEA said.

“This is a matter of the integrity of the IAEA and its inspectors,” spokeswoman Melissa Fleming said in a statement.

A Western diplomat called it “deja vu of the pre-Iraq war period”.

The IAEA and the US clashed over intelligence that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction in the lead-up to the war in Iraq in March 2003.

You invade one little country by distorting all of the intelligence and they never let you forget. Nag, nag, nag.
