The Cipher Brief: "It turns out that the real mistake in the Iraq war was not the judgment that they came to, but the fact that if they had really thought about it, the analysts would have only said that they only had low confidence in that judgment that Saddam had weapons of mass destruction. That would have been a completely different message, right?This shows the power of oil. They are so contemptuous of people they think they can pass off mass murder as a "mistake."
That was a mistake, so the lesson learned from Iraq was to really focus on your level of confidence in the judgment you’re making. "
