Israelis ‘misread’ Iraqi threat therefore now they want us to believe them about Iran
No weapons have been found so far
Israeli intelligence miscalculated the threat posed by Saddam Hussein, an Israeli think-tank has suggested.
This contributed to the “false” picture painted by US and British services, said the Jaffee Center for Strategic Studies at Tel Aviv University.
The country’s secret services could lose their credibility over the issue, Israeli politicians have warned.
Six months after the end of major hostilities, no weapons of mass destruction have been found in Iraq.
“Israeli intelligence was a full partner with the US and Britain in developing a false picture of Saddam Hussein’s weapons of mass destruction capability,” said the author of the report, retired Brigadier General Shlomo Brom.
