She responds with the typical party line of a civil war being a "hypothetical" that she would not address. Now is it really a hypothetical or would it be considered planning? In early 2003, when the final plans for the war were being drawn up, I guess a robust insurgency was also a hypothetical that they would not get into.

This just gives us a greater look into the workings of the administration, where they consider things that they don't want to happen as "hypothetical", and that line of thinking is what has put us in the situation we are today.
