<table border="0" cellpadding="6" cellspacing="0" width="99%"><tr><td class="alt2" style="border:1px inset;">WASHINGTON — A former Pentagon official on Sunday defended his prewar assessment of a relationship between Iraq and Al Qaeda, calling it a much-needed critique of the CIA's intelligence on the subject.<br><br>
"It's healthy to criticize the CIA's intelligence," said former Pentagon policy chief Douglas Feith. "What the people in the Pentagon were doing was right. It was good government."<br><br>
Feith was responding to a report by the Defense Department inspector general that Feith's office "did not provide the most accurate analysis of intelligence to senior decision makers."</td>

This is one of the most confusing articles I've ever read. I'm really not sure what's going on here.

It is worth noting that former Gen. Tommy Franks called Feith "the fucking stupidest guy on the face of the earth" in Bob Woodward's book <i>Plan of Attack</i>.

I'm sure he meant it in a nice way.
