Foreign commentary:

El Diario/LA PRENSA OnLine
"Scheid spoke to the Newport News (Va.) Daily Press, telling the newspaper that Rumsfeld had forbidden military strategists to plan for securing postwar Iraq. Rumsfeld “said we will not do that because the American public will not back us if they think we are going over there for a long war...”"
JAG Hunter here: If Defense Secretary Rumsfeld spoke these words he must be removed from office instantly. More, if Rumsfled blocked military personnel from anticipating and planning out a very predictable course of events in Iraq then SECDEF Rumsfled is as respondible for the unreasonable and unncessary loss of American life as is SECDEF Les Aspin from blocking armored rolling stock deployment to Somalia in pre-"Blackhawk down" days.

It may well be that the generals were not among those responsible for post war planning, and at any rate, too much planning when the conditions that prevail might not be a good idea.
