"Among other things, the 40-page Senate report reveals that two intelligence assessments before the war accurately predicted that toppling Saddam could lead to a dangerous period of internal violence and provide a boost to terrorists. But those warnings were seemingly ignored."<br><br>
"It also warned that “many angry young recruits” would fuel the rank of Islamic extremists and "Iraqi political culture is so embued with mores (opposed) to the democratic experience … that it may resist the most rigorous and prolonged democratic tutorials."<br><br>
None of those warnings were reflected in the administration's predictions about the war."<br><br>
This is a really good article... surprising at how accurate the CIA was... and how everything was ignored (or was it?) by Bush & Co.

Edited to add: It wasn't just the CIA. The two main studies that are part of the committee's report National Intelligence Council is made ip of the U.S. intelligence community, including NSA, DoD and the State Dept. intelligence.
