Who Lost Iraq?

Michael Schwartz, TomDispatch.com: "As the Bush administration was entering office in 2000, Donald Rumsfeld exuberantly expressed its grandiose ambitions for Middle East domination, telling a National Security Council meeting: 'Imagine what the region would look like without Saddam and with a regime that's aligned with U.S. interests. It would change everything in the region and beyond.' A few weeks later, Bush speechwriter David Frum offered an even more exuberant version of the same vision to the New York Times Magazine: 'An American-led overthrow of Saddam Hussein, and the replacement of the radical Baathist dictatorship with a new government more closely aligned with the United States, would put America more wholly in charge of the region than any power since the Ottomans, or maybe even the Romans.' From the moment on May 1, 2003, when the President declared 'major combat operations ended' on the deck of the USS Abraham Lincoln, such exuberant administration statements have repeatedly been deflated by events on the ground."
