"Pillar wrote that the first request he received from a Bush policymaker for an assessment of post-invasion Iraq was "not until a year into the war."

Arthur's response:

"This is simply mindboggling in terms of the degree of criminal irresponsibility it reveals. Americans and Iraqis were being killed and wounded for a year, untold amounts of American taxpayer dollars were being spent, Iraq was spiraling out of control -- and only after a year does "a Bush policymaker" ask for "an assessment of post-invasion Iraq."
