Here We Go Again?

It appears that our Middle East intelligence machine hasn't gotten much better since 9/11 if what is being written in this morning's Washington Post is any indication.

A 29 page report from the House intelligence committee states that though they believe that Iran is moving towards nuclear weapons production, the evidence provided by our intelligence community doesn't provide any evidence to support that conclusion.
"American intelligence agencies do not know nearly enough about Iran's nuclear weapons program" to help policymakers at a critical time, the report's authors say. Information "regarding potential Iranian chemical weapons and biological weapons programs is neither voluminous nor conclusive," and little evidence has been gathered to tie Iran to al-Qaeda and to the recent fighting between Israel and Hezbollah in southern Lebanon, they say.

Sound familiar?
