Beaten To The Punch: SMC Outflanks The Pack On Breaking CIA Study "The Perfect Storm"

Two days ago this story at Washington Post broke the news about about a 2002 CIA study titled "The Perfect Storm: Planning for Negative Consequences of Invading Iraq".

Sound familiar? Yep, that was one of the studies Swedish Meatball Confidential's own Effwit excavated from the Senate Intelligence Report and broke here May 26, a solid week ahead of the regular (and irregular) hounds. (Report of the Select Committee on Intelligence on Prewar Assessments About Postwar Iraq).

Nobody else anywhere had found it. We confirmed this through following back Google searches from the many visitors we received looking for info after reading the Washington Post article.

It's posts like this we obnoxiously label as Trophies. We don't have many but what we have ain't half bad for this numerically (and otherwise) challenged clan of meatballs.

P.S. If anyone discovers that we in fact weren't first out of the blocks with the story then we'd appreciate if you let us know. We'll send you a signed official SMC meatball for your troubles - they are hardcore collectibles.
