Best, Jr, R. A. (n.d.). U.S. Intelligence and Policymaking: The Iraq Experience. Retrieved from

Excerpt: To analyze this issue, it is necessary to understand the role of the Intelligence Community in support of the policymaking process. Intelligence agencies collect information, process, and analyze it; and disseminate analytical products to officials throughout the federal government. Policymakers base their decisions on a wide variety of factors, including available intelligence, but also on their own assessment of the costs and benefits of a course of action (or inaction), considerations of geopolitical objectives, ideology, available resources, diplomatic (and domestic political) risks -- a variety of factors well beyond the purview of intelligence agencies.
