Joint Chiefs Chair admits yet another Iraqi misjudgment

| Reddit | Tumblr | Digg | FARK

Serious question: Is there any aspect of the Iraq war that the Bush administration did not misjudge, underestimate or get just plain wrong? Anything?:

The U.S. military's top commander said Wednesday that he underestimated the extent of the reluctance of the Iraqi people to accept a unified government, and he thought citizens would more quickly embrace the idea of a central government.

"I think that I certainly did not understand the depth of fear that was generated by the decades of Saddam's rule," said Gen. Peter Pace, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, in an interview en route to Saudi Arabia. "I think a lot of Iraqis have been in the wait-and-see mode longer that I thought they would."
