Too little planning, too few troops?

Tom Maguire takes note of a NYT article which cites an undisclosed Rand report critical of the planning and troop levels in Iraq.

Charles ( Colorado) nails it:

That's right: the planning was inadequate, there were too few troops, and as a result we took, held, liberated, re-established a popularly-elected government in a country the size of France, and crushed al Qaeda in Iraq while exhausting its resources world wide, with fewer casualties then we sustained on and directly following D-Day.

What a bunch of dopes.
