Foresight and Hindsight. (n.d.). Foresight and Hindsight. Retrieved from

Excerpt: In composing this narrative, we have tried to remember that we write with the benefit and the handicap of hindsight. Hindsight can sometimes see the past clearly- with 20/20 vision. But the path of what happened is so brightly lit that it places everything else more deeply into shadow. Commenting on Pearl Harbor,Roberta Wohlstetter found it “much easier after the event to sort the relevant from the irrelevant signals.After the event,of course,a signal is always crystal clear; we can now see what disaster it was signaling since the disaster has occurred. But before the event it is obscure and pregnant with conflicting meanings.
