It's just nitpicking, I know, it just felt that too many of the characters made knee-jerk or bad decisions.
So the rogues *said* they had the ambassador's secrets. Who's gonna prove that and how? Get yet another telepath to go in and get those secrets to prove it? Which race's telepath would do that? Would all the other races go along with that? IMO, that'd never happen.

As for the bad decisions - exactly the point. Remember, B5 is all about process. So Sheridan and others had to learn by doing.
