Intelligence Failure is the eighth studio album of the actor Viggo Mortensen and seventh with the avant-garde guitarist Buckethead, released in 2005. The album combines traditional and original compositions, as well as clips of public speeches, most notably of George W. Bush and members of his administration. The album also features the producer, and keyboardist Travis Dickerson as well as Viggo's son, Henry Mortensen, who has regularly performed with his father, and Walter Mortensen.[1] According to Viggo Mortensen when talking about the album he says:

The album is dedicated to Casey, and Cindy Sheehan, their family, and all citizens in U.S.A. The label TDRS Music made available an excerpt of the song "What kind of Nation" from the album to be downloaded from their webpage.
