How to resolve a paradox.

1. The CIA intelligence was correct - We know this from comparing the intelligence reports fron the CIA with our post-invasion knowledge of Iraq.
2. What Bush said was incorrect - We know this both from the CIA intelligence reports and our post-invasion knowledge of Iraq.
3. The intelligence that Bush recieved was incorrect - according to he Senate Select Committee on Intelligence report

Hmm... so how do we resolve these contradicting axioms? Some people, it still seems, would close their eyes and ears so as to drop out "1." The depressingly slim majority would sooner drop out "3.", having their eyes and ears open, and critical thinking skills.

However - there remains one more possibility: the possibility that all three axioms are correct, and that, in fact, they do not contradict eachother. But how can this be so?

A puzzle for the "out-of-the-box" thinkers out there.
