In the February 24th edition of the Wall Street Journal, Gabriel Schoenfeld reviewed Why Intelligence Fails: Lessons from the Iranian Revolution and the Iraq War by Robert Jervis. Schoenfeld writes:

“In ‘Why Intelligence Fails,’ Mr. Jervis examines two important U.S. intelligence lapses and tries to account for what went awry.
