Provided intelligence from the IDF'S A'MAN (the Hebrew acronym for Agaf Mode'In), its intelligence branch, the Sayeret Mat'kal (the General Staff's own reconnaissance commando unit) mobilized, rehearsed its plans, flew 2,500 miles, and struck at the Entebbe airport, rescuing more than 100 passengers and crew with a minimum loss of life.
This thinking, in turn, blinded the IDF's military intelligence branch, A'MAN, to the likelihood of war in early October, despite an enormous amount of credible information from a range of human and electronic sources pointing precisely in that direction.
Only a handful of junior intelligence officers accurately interpreted the information flowing into A'MAN, and they were effectively silenced by their superiors within the organization.
