If the version of kismet (which you failed to include) you are running, doesn't support the iwl driver, then it is an old version.

The current stable version, Kismet-2007-10-R1, includes support for the iwl drivers, as stated in the changelog and in the online documentation which you can read by clicking the second link above, surprisingly called "Documentation" - Section 12, twentyfirst capture source listed.

If you are using a binary kismetpackage, supplied from a packagerepository of whatever distro you are using (which you also failed to include), then you either have to wait until the distromaintainer figures out there is a newer release available, or download the source and compile Kismet-2007-10-R1 yourself.
