Lack of planning contributed to chaos in Iraq

Monday, July 14, 2003 | 11:56 PM

An excellent article in the Kansas City Star explaining how a successfully planned and prosecuted war could devolve into such a poorly executed peace -- all due to the failure to consider all possible outcomes. (Apparently, War planners make the same mistakes that so many investors do: Fail to plan exit strategies for all contingencies).

You can see the full piece here: "Lack of planning contributed to chaos in Iraq." Its worth the read.

BTW, the current stories out of Iraq are consistent with the research we released in Mid March (prior to the war's start); You can download Not-So-Hidden Agenda: Strategic and Economic Assessments of U.S. led Invasion in the Middle East (A Pre War Analysis, March 19, 2003) in your favorite format here:
