Report of the Commission on Intelligence...WMD

On March 31, 2005, Judge Laurence H. Silberman and Charles S. Robb, co-chairmen of the Commission on the Intelligence Capabilities of the United States Regarding Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) presented the committee's report to President Bush. The link supplied is, of course, to the unclassified report.

The Commission was charged with reviewing the intelligence capabilities of the United States Intelligence Community-comprised of over a dozen intelligence agencies including the Central Intelligence Agency, the National Security Agency, and the Defense Intelligence Agency-with respect to threats such as those posed to the United States by WMDs.

The report is both lengthy and comprehensive. A quick-and-dirty overview of the report is in the letter of transmittal from the Commission to the President.

The President responded to the Commission report in a press conference on March 31, 2005, in Room 450 of the Old Executive Office Building.
