This CIA pub makes some great points: Psychology of Intelligence Analysis by Richards J. Heuer, Jr.

My favorite quote from Chapter 8:

Analysis of competing hypotheses involves seeking evidence to refute hypotheses. The most probable hypothesis is usually the one with the least evidence against it, not the one with the most evidence for it. Conventional analysis generally entails looking for evidence to confirm a favored hypothesis.
