No one can convince me that the Bushites had any intention of
"winning" in Iraq, which currently means, winning hearts and minds to build a flourishing Democracy, there.
They have done absolutely nothing that would indicate that they give a whit about the Iraqis; not from day one.
Why does anyone wonder how they lost this thing so badly?
Seems obvious to me.

In the first of three extracts from his new book, Rajiv Chandrasekaran exposes life in the Green Zone.
