Recently declassified documents from the US State Department provide further proof that Bush, Cheney, and Rumsfeld marched off to war without a plan.

Oh, wait, sorry. My bad. They didn't march off to anything. Rather, it was the sons and daughters of the American people--the people who foolishly believed that their leaders knew what they were doing--that did the marching.

Turns out the State Department wrote a memo about six weeks before the start of the war warning that "a failure to address short-term public security and humanitarian assistance concerns could result in serious human rights abuses which would undermine an otherwise successful military campaign, and our reputation internationally."

Too bad no one listened.
