Having my claims backed up by the CIA is so satisfying. :) Link below; my emphasis.

“A newly released report published by the CIA rebukes the Bush administration for not paying enough attention to prewar intelligence that predicted the factional rivalries now threatening to split Iraq.
Policymakers worried more about making the case for the war, particularly the claim that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction, than planning for the aftermath, the report says. The report was written by a team of four former CIA analysts led by former deputy CIA director Richard Kerr.
"In an ironic twist, the policy community was receptive to technical intelligence (the weapons program), where the analysis was wrong, but apparently paid little attention to intelligence on cultural and political issues (post-Saddam Iraq), where the analysis was right," they write.”

I read an article in the Atlantic over a year ago that pretty much said the same thing. I believe Bush screwed up big with the post-war planning, but that doesn't mean that U.S. soldiers who have died have wasted their lives.
