Qu'est que "Intelligence"?
There's an old and racist joke which I cannot remember, but it ends with this catchphrase, What is "Intelligence"?
Good article in the Christian Science Monitor about politics and intelligence
WMD joins the Hall of Intelligence-Twisting Fame | csmonitor.com:
"The lesson that runs through these and other mishaps of US foreign policy is that policy ought to be built on intelligence and not the other way around. If intelligence is shaped or distorted to support predetermined policy, trouble is sure to follow."

Another name for "predetermined policy" is "wishful thinking".
