This book critically examines the weaknesses of American
intelligence led by the Central Intelligence Agency in informing
presidential decision making on issues of war and peace. It
evaluates the CIA's strategic intelligence performance during the
Cold War and post-Cold War periods as a foundation for examining
the root causes of intelligence failures surrounding the September
11th attacks and assessments of Iraq's weapons of mass destruction
programs in the run up to the Iraq War. The book probes these
intelligence failures, which lie in the CIA's poor human
intelligence collection and analysis practices. The book argues
that none of the post-9/11 intelligence reforms have squarely
addressed these root causes of strategic intelligence failure and
it recommends measures for redressing these dangerous
vulnerabilities in American security.
