What word best describes US Intelligence?

US intelligence agencies suffer from a poor analytical process influenced by presumptions and biases, and poor data collection capabilities, according to an unclassified report just out from the Commission on the Intelligence Capabilities of the United States Regarding Weapons of Mass Destruction.


In places, the report becomes internally inconsistent. It opens with the statement, "after a thorough review, the Commission found no indication that the intelligence community distorted the evidence regarding Iraq's weapons of mass destruction...They were simply wrong."

I voted for "Incompenepteticy" simply because I like new words. What does it mean?

I refuse to participate in this poll! Because "oxymoron" isn't on the list of options.........

An oxymoron is a word or phrase that is self contradicting, Tarek. House Ethics comes to mind, but German Sobriety might hit closer to home.

No it's not. It's a grown man with a low IQ (that believes fairytales like OJ is innocent, and Wookies), and suffers from severe adult acne.
