Negroponte Responds to Questions on Fleitz Report

During a Sunday Morning Stakeout, Sam Husseini asked John Negroponte: “Ambassador, why did your office approve the Fleitz Report on Iran's nuclear program, even though according to the IAEA, the report contained ‘erroneous, misleading, and unsubstantiated information’ about Iran's nuclear program?”

Negroponte responded: “We did not...of course, as you know, that report was written by a staff member of the House Intelligence Committee, we did not originate it, and we weren't commenting so much on the content, as we were…we dealt with it from a declassifcation point of view, what could be published in an unclassified format, so I wouldn't associate us one way or another, we didn't comment one way or another on the conclusions that were drawn by that report.”
