Coordination sorely needed in Washington

State Dept. Study Foresaw Trouble Now Plaguing Iraq: "A yearlong State Department study predicted many of the problems that have plagued the American-led occupation of Iraq, according to internal State Department documents and interviews with administration and Congressional officials."

"Several officials said that many of the findings in the $5 million study were ignored by Pentagon officials until recently, although the Pentagon said they took the findings into account. The work is now being relied on heavily as occupation forces struggle to impose stability in Iraq."

It's really incredible how all these agencies fight against each other. First the CIA and the FBI and now State and the Pentagon. Someone needs to go up there and kick some butt. It is obvious from this article that many problems could have been avoided - thick headed hawks in the Pentagon were too stubborn to realize what was about to bite them. And my taxpayer dollars go for this?
