Kevin Pierce presents: Why Intelligence Fails (audiobook production and narration)

By Robert Jervis; Kevin Pierce, audiobook narrator and producer

The U.S. government spends enormous resources on the gathering and analysis of intelligence, yet its policy history is littered with missteps and misunderstandings that have resulted from intelligence failures. Why Intelligence Fails examines the politics and psychology of two spectacular intelligence failures: the mistaken belief that the regime of the Shah in Iran was secure and stable in 1978, and the claim that Iraq had active WMD programs in 2002.
