“As Warren P. Strobel and John Walcott of Knight-Ridder observed [on October 16, 2004], ‘The Bush administration’s failure to plan to win the peace in Iraq was the product of many of the same problems that plagued the administration’s case for war, including wishful thinking, bad information from Iraqi exiles who said Iraqis would welcome American troops as liberators and contempt for dissenting opinions.’ ”
