Response to NCLefty (Original post)

8. That was enlightening.

Stuart W. Bowen Jr. wrote a book titled: "Hard Lessons: The Iraq Reconstruction Experience"
From summary:

"...dramatic and frequently reactive course-changes in reconstruction strategy - the turbulence engendered by continual personnel turnover at every level - the waste caused by inadequate contracting and program management practices - the poor integration of interagency efforts caused by weak unity of command and inconsistent unity of effort. ..."

Defend our military machine at all costs. What a damn waste that war was. Cheney and Rumsfeld must have filled their pockets full.

How again did they defend that war? There was never any "yellow cake" coming from Niger and shipped to Iraq per Joe Wilson and Valerie Plame. Didn't an Italian news paper report on that pre-war?
