AP: CIA ignored spy report of no Iraqi nukes
WASHINGTON - A new book on the government's secret anti-terrorism operations describes how therecruited an Iraqi-American anesthesiologist in 2002 to obtain information from her brother, who was a figure in 's nuclear program.
Dr. Sawsan Alhaddad, a prominent civic leader in Cleveland, made the dangerous trip toon the CIA's behalf. The book said her brother was stunned by her questions about the nuclear program because he said it had been dead for a decade.
New York Times reporter James Risen (whose book State of War is shown at right) uses the anecdote to illustrate how the CIA ignored information that Iraq no longer had weapons of mass destruction. His book, "State of War: The Secret History of the CIA and the Bush Administration" describes secret operations of the Bush administration's war on terrorism.
