State Department experts warned CENTCOM before Iraq war about lack of plans for post-war Iraq security

So now we have more documents showing how early we were planning for regime change in Iraq (when we should have still been focused on fighting Al Qaeda and finding Osama bin Laden), as well as how poor the plans were for the post-war phase of the operation, oh and these new ones are American. Now, I'm sure this can all be spun into something different and innocuous by the administration, but at some point, don't you have to start to wonder why there are so many things they have to do that kind of spin on? Whether it's the Downing Street Memo, these documents, Karl Rove and the Plame leak, Weapons of Mass Destruction, Yellow Cake, Niger and Joe Wilson, there's just too much. Any of these things individually can be explained away, but as a whole, it should be pretty clear by now, that this administration says one thing, then does something else, then when caught, tries to change the subject, or lie until people aren't interested anymore, then hope that by the time the truth comes out people forget what was said originally. The sad thing is that that strategy is working fairly well for them.

At this point, I'm just waiting for a video to surface with W saying something to the effect of, "I don't care about September 11th, I just want to invade Iraq." Unfortunately, if there was such a thing, it would be ignored by the media, then if outraged citizens finally managed to push it into the mainstream, people wouldn't care anyway, since you know, Bush is someone they'd like to have a beer with. Assholes.
