Ex-Spies Predict Planting of WMD ‘Evidence’

Here’s an interesting article, courtesy of the Smirking Chimp, and India’s Sify News, and France’s AFP: Ex-spies slam US over failure to find WMDs. It’s based on a statement by a group called Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity (VIPS), apparently formed by former spies who object to the politicization of their profession at the hands of the Bush team. An excerpt:

Retired CIA intelligence analyst Ray McGovern told AFP: “Some of my colleagues are virtually certain that there will be some weapons of mass destruction found, even though they might have to be planted.

“I’m just as sure that some few will be found, but not in an amount that by any stretch would justify the charge of a threat against the US or anyone else.”

He added: “Even if the planting was discovered by and by, they’ll say, ‘ok, the weapons were planted – fine.'”
