Scathing critique unburied

February 2008
National Catholic Reporter;2/22/2008, Vol. 44 Issue 13, p32
The author focuses on a report commissioned by the U.S. Army that criticizes the plan of President George W. Bush's administration for postwar Iraq, which was leaked to the "The New York Times." Based on the study by Rand Corp., the report discussed the failure of Bush and Condoleezza Rice, the national security adviser, to reconcile tensions between the Defense and State departments. It describes the Iraq development plan of former Secretary of State Colin L. Powell as being uneven in quality.
