On March 4, 2003, Undersecretary for Policy “Doug Feith gave a secret briefing to the president and the NSC [National Security Council]…on ‘U.S. and Coalition Objectives’ for an Iraq war. It was rosy, pie-in-the-sky political science–everything from visibly improving quality of life for Iraqis to moving toward democracy and obtaining ‘international participation in the reconstruction.’ It was a wish list of high hopes with no how-to.”

 – Bob Woodward, State of Denial, Page 136
