* TooCleverByHalf: The main thrust of the episode. Basically, they forget that other people are ''also'' allowed to analyze things and make their own moves. The most immediate result is that their attempt to turn over intelligence is instantly discovered and prevented. The one they never found about (but we the audience learned a few episodes prior) is that the Dominion ''also'' predicted the Earth-base rebellion the Jack Pack think is the only hope and plan to sterilize the planet to prevent that very thing.

They also don't know (and neither does anybody else for at least another year) about the Changeling virus that Section 31 created, which will play a surprising role in the outcome of the war.

* ArtisticLicenseStatistics: If Bashir and the genetically engineered quartet really are super-geniuses, they should know right from the start that they can't make accurate predictions on the outcome of the Federation/Dominion war based on the limited data they have. But in order for the [[AnAesop aesop]] to work, they need to be ignorant of this at first, so that they can all learn a lesson by the end of the episode.

The most obvious is that they didn't even ''consider'' that the Dominion might be able to do the same math and alter their plans accordingly (which the audience knows they did several episodes earlier).

Subverted in that an earlier episode had revealed the Dominion had predicted the same thing and was already planning drastic measures to prevent it.

* BewareTheSuperman: The Jack Pack make for a very compelling case for why the Federation government is afraid of genetic engineering. They're smart and helpful, but they almost cause the Federation to lose the war because their arrogance.

They're smart and helpful, but they almost cause the Federation to lose the war because their arrogance. However, this is ''explicitly'' because the ban meant they received badly done black-market treatments that effected their sanity and face open persecution out of fear.
