"This work examines the many roadblocks the Intelligence Community confronts as it attempts to provide accurate and timely intelligence in support of American foreign policy and national security interests. Kennedy's goal is to meet the needs of policymakers and, at the same time, to provide the average American, as well as students of foreign and security policy, with a more comprehensive understanding of the overall intelligence effort."--BOOK JACKET.
