Here's the post you needed to summarize this report.
More to the point, I think we have to be resigned to the idea that intelligence will not decide what we do, though its guesses can be useful for policymakers who wish to use them. We also have to be aware that those who claim that intelligence is politicized are generally engaging in analysis of results, not of process (though there have been several, well publicized, situations in which that was true, this is not one.) Finally, we have to point out, yet again, that Lew Rockwell is not to be trusted on national security topics, nor anyone he commends. But then you knew that already.
