Poor planning

From World Tribune.com, via DeLong.
U.S. war planners, practitioners and the civilian leadership conceived of the war far too narrowly. This overly simplistic conception of the war led to a cascading undercutting of the war effort: too few troops, too little coordination with civilian and governmental/non-governmental agencies and too little allotted time to achieve success.
What liberal wimp is undercutting our war efforts by saying such things? Major Isaiah Wilson, the official historian of the U.S. Army for the Iraq war and war planner for the Army's 101st Airborne Division until March 2004.
