How some people spent their Valentine










On this day fifteen years ago, hundreds of Iraqis were hiding in Baghdad when US air forces struck their shelter in Al-Amiriyah, killing more 500 people.
Reason for attack: intelligence reports suggesting the bunker was a military command site.
Victims: Almost all were women and children.
Weapons found : None.
Twelve years later, another strike on Iraq, again based on intelligence reports that Iraq had WMD and was linked directly to al-Qaeda, or so they said.
It's either that the intelligence is not intelligent, or people are too stupid to believe them.

"It's either that the intelligence is not intelligent, or people are too stupid to believe them."... It's certainly both...
