The Washington Post on Wednesday quoted Bush administration officials as saying they had focused so much on ousting Saddam that they had not given much thought to how the ensuing power vacuum would be filled.

The officials said the administration had underestimated the organizational strength of the Shi'ite majority and were not ready to prevent the possible rise of an anti-American, Islamic fundamentalist government.


I can't believe this. Are you fucking serious? Bush administration officials are ADMITTING this? You never thought of this, this never occurred to you? Are you fucking serious? DON'T YOU READ LIVEJOURNAL? We've all been wondering what the fuck you were going to do after the war for MONTHS! Amazing. I mean not amazing that it's happening, but amazing that they think they can shrug their shoulders and say "we didn't really have time to think about it" and expect us to all be like "yeah, you really had a lot on your mind, don't worry about it, we'll figure something out." This isn't college! You can't finish this shit the night before it's due and get two hours of sleep and stumble into class and start a fucking war and then you get to the end and you're like oh yeah we forgot about that!

The mind boggles.
