Ricks does a great job summarizing the policy blunders in the U.S. (mis)adventure in Iraq. From Bremer’s micro-management to Wolfowitz’s incomprehension of the facts. It’s all there, and covered in detail with lots of quotes. Indeed, there were so many interesting quotes, I would have to have quoted them all here, and I don’t have that much time. :-(
