Like a Black Fly in Your Chardonnay

I'm not sure if ironic is the right word here.
In an ironic twist, the policy community was receptive to technical intelligence (the weapons program), where the analysis was wrong, but apparently paid little attention to intelligence on cultural and political issues (post-Saddam Iraq), where the analysis was right.

Seems to me it wasn't the "policy community" that ignored the intel on Iraqi society, it was the white house.
