Were these intelligence failures, or policy failures? The answer is, and perhaps always will be elusive. This book does lay out some possible solutions, and ex-posits on why neither of these failures had to be pre-ordained. Negative evidence and alternative analysis are two disciplines that have proven difficult to master, and not only in the social science of intelligence forecasting.
