I'm very suspicious of anything that the M.E.K. provides, said David A. Kay, who led the C.I.A.'s fruitless effort to find weapons program in Iraq. We all dealt with the Chalabis of the world once.

Public intelligence
Israel's intelligence services agree with American intelligence assessments that there is not enough proof to determine whether Iran is building a nuclear bomb, according to a report published Sunday in the New York Times.

The newspaper said that senior American officials believe there is little disagreement between the Mossad and U.S. intelligence agencies over Iran's nuclear program, despite the fact that Israeli political leaders have been pushing for quick action to block Iran from becoming what they describe as an existential threat.

The report further quoted one former senior American intelligence official who states that the Mossad "does not disagree with the U.S. on the weapons program," adding that there is "not a lot of dispute between the U.S. and Israeli intelligence communities on the facts."

The United States and Israel share intelligence on Iran, American officials said. For its spying efforts, Israel relies in part on an Iranian exile group that is labeled a terrorist organization by the United States, the Mujahedeen Khalq, or M.E.K., which is based in Iraq. The Israelis have also developed close ties in the semiautonomous region of Kurdistan in northern Iraq, and they are believed to use Kurdish agents who can move back and forth across the border into Iran.

American intelligence officials, however, are wary of relying on information from an opposition group like the M.E.K., particularly after their experience in Iraq of relying on flawed information provided by the Iraqi National Congress, an exile group run by Ahmad Chalabi.

"I'm very suspicious of anything that the M.E.K. provides," said David A. Kay, who led the C.I.A.'s fruitless effort to find weapons program in Iraq. "We all dealt with the Chalabis of the world once."
