It sounds interesting. I'll have to look to see her assesment of Iraq today and the potential for the future.

No, it's a statement about what (I believe) to be naivite on the part of Washington. They thought they could go into Iraq, kick Saddam out, and start a democratic state apparatus in a few months.
I don't think that Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz et al necessarily believed that it would be easy, but I do think that they and Bush are caving to election-year pressures by trying to exit Iraq without regard for the future health of the country.

All of the presidential candidates would be wise to recognize that it took Afghanistan, a country with many fewer problems than Iraq, over two years just to write a constitution.

The Bush administration has no plans for an early exit for Iraq. The current plan is to have 105,000 US troops stationed in Iraq all the way through 2006 and longer if necessary.

They need to not make snap decisions on Iraq. There's not much margin for error in a country like it. That's really what I'm trying to get at. It's tricky to do the right thing, but so important.
