Missile Attack May Have Been Based on Bad Intelligence

by TChris

Was the U.S. missile attack in Fallujah based on another intelligence failure? Brig. Gen. Mark Kimmitt assured reporters that multiple intelligence sources confirmed that the attacked house was used by the al-Zarqawi network. But a senior officer of the U.S. backed Fallujah Brigade doesn't believe that the missiles struck an al-Zarqawi safehouse.

Col. Mohammed Awad said members of the Fallujah Brigade had investigated the site and "affirmed to us that the inhabitants of the houses were ordinary families including women, children and elders." "There was no sign that foreigners have lived in the house," Awad said.
