Bush Iraq Plans Were ‘Delusional’

British people get told this via the BBC, but (unless you live in Alaska) will you see it in your daily paper?

Iraq invasion plan 'delusional': The US invasion plan for Iraq envisaged that only 5,000 US troops would remain in Iraq by December 2006, declassified Central Command documents show.

The material also shows that the US military projected a stable, pro-US and democratic Iraq by that time.

The August 2002 material was obtained by the National Security Archive (NSA). Its officials said the plans were based on delusional assumptions.

The US currently has some 132,000 troops in the violence-torn state.

    It was in today’s NY Times, page A10.

    I believe I said something along the same lines (embellished with expletives) prior to the invasion.

  3. Unfortunately, Bush’s Iraq plans are still delusional. He really thinks adding another 21,500 troops is going to solve his problem. He should send them to Afghanistan where they would actually make a difference before it is too late.

    BroD, I cannot believe you would use such foul language!! Surely this proves you un-serious and worthy of my prodigious capability for contempt and condemnation!

  5. BroD says:

    You’re right, of course, LACJ. My only defense is that I mastered the lexicon in service to my country (U.S. Army, 64′-’65) and use it in the same spirit.
