for Release of Second Secret Iraq Report

damning Iraq report floating around the intelligence community.
At least, that's according to Rep. Jane Harman (CA), the top
Democrat on the House intelligence committee. At an event this morning,
Harman disclosed the existence of a classified intelligence community
report that gives a grim assessment of the situation in Iraq, and
called for it to be shared with the American public -- before
the November elections.
The report has not been shared with Congress, although sources
draft version may have circulated earlier this summer. It is a separate
report from the one revealed by major news outlets Sunday, which is
said to conclude that the war in Iraq has made the U.S. less secure
from terrorist threats.
"This morning at the National Press Club, Jane Harman did say
there is an [National Intelligence Estimate] on Iraq," her spokesman,
Ari Goldberg, confirmed. Golberg said he had not read the report, but
believes it may be grim. Sources at the event say the document is not
officially an NIE, although it was prepared by the National
Intelligence Council, an community-wide intelligence body whose primary
function is to prepare NIEs.
