Wolfowitz admits that the Bush administration never even considered the possibility that there could be a counterinsurgency in Iraq.

Wolfowitz Admits 'Clueless' on Counterinsurgency - April 29, 2008 - The New York Sun: "The former deputy secretary of defense said yesterday that the force sent to Iraq was adequate for fighting Saddam Hussein's military, citing the speed with which American troops toppled the regime. But Mr. Wolfowitz said no one in the Bush administration anticipated that Saddam would order his security services to wage an insurgency after their formal defeat on the battlefield."

Really? The animator of the Gulf War Game below figured it out. It seems to me that when they're now willing to go down in history with the label of "gross incompetence," it's only because they're afraid of other labels which put them in jail.
