Sorry about that, I rushed at making this debate. But I too know a very-well-done movie with werewolves playing a good part in it. "Twilight." (Haha) I think, when they say "while retaining human intelligence", they're referring to the beings' mentality in a sort.

Yes, in the movie "An American Werewolf in London" I do understand that David was experiencing memory loss after he transformed into a werewolf, naturally meaning any kind of intelligence is clearly absent. But there's this one scene in the movie, specifically his second transformation. What happens is that he's cornered by the police during one of his killing-sprees. Shortly afterwards, his lover Alex arrives. Once she sees him in utter rampage, she tells him she loves him, and it softens him and eventually calms him down. (Then he was shot)
Just to get to the point, although David wasn't controlling his mind, it didn't mean he couldn't channel it. He remembered his love even when in wolf form, so his "human-level intelligence" wasn't fully gone. Of course, this is just my opinion :)

Also, for my opponent, facts used in your argument don't have to be necessarily true, it can be used just as long as you can persuade the readers into following your belief.

Your definition of "werewolf" may be distorted. One very-well-done movie, "An American Werewolf in London", did not portray the wolf phase as having human-level intelligence. The concept may actually be a recent addition to the werewolf "canon"; I suspect most of the early works on the subject also excluded human-level intelligence from the wolf space (but I haven't studied them well enough to be sure).
