Plans? Later....

I remember Bush saying to Kerry during the third debate that "A plan is not a litany of complaints." Apparently, to Bush, a plan is something "To be provided:" Bush will get to later, after American soldiers are dying on the ground. Just trust Bush's demeanor -- he doesn't need a plan:

Post-war planning non-existent
WASHINGTON - In March 2003, days before the start of the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq, American war planners and intelligence officials met at Shaw Air Force Base in South Carolina to review the Bush administration's plans to oust Saddam Hussein and implant democracy in Iraq.

Near the end of his presentation, an Army lieutenant colonel who was giving a briefing showed a slide describing the Pentagon's plans for rebuilding Iraq after the war, known in the planners' parlance as Phase 4-C. He was uncomfortable with his material - and for good reason.

The slide said: "To Be Provided."
Read the whole story for more examples of how pathetic Bush was about planning for the Iraq post-war. Bush was certain: certain he didn't need to plan, or use anyone else's plan, for what became a horribly chaotic post-war security situation where insurgents are rampant and soldiers are sitting ducks.

George Bush was certain that would not happen. George Bush was certain and wrong. Wrong about the most important duty of the President: sending troops to war.

Bush was certain, and Bush was wrong.
