French warned CIA re bogus intelligence

http://www.latimes.com/news/nationwo...home-headlines

"PARIS — More than a year before President Bush declared in his 2003 State of the Union speech that Iraq had tried to buy nuclear weapons material in Africa, the French spy service began repeatedly warning the CIA in secret communications that there was no evidence to support the allegation.

The previously undisclosed exchanges between the U.S. and the French, described in interviews last week by the retired chief of the French counterintelligence service and a former CIA official, came on separate occasions in 2001 and 2002...."

But the French intelligence community and Chirac both believed that Saddam did have WMD at the time of the March 2003 invasion.

No, their disputing a single piece of intelligence about the purchase of nuclear materials from Africa, not that Saddam was in possession of WMD in Iraq.
