Planning Failures

President George W. Bush failed to plan -- or rather adopt the State Department's fully realized plan -- for the occupation of Iraq following the rapid military victory in 2003. General David Petraeus and his team failed to plan for the success of their sweeps in Baghdad (Sweeps in Iraq Cram Two Jails With Detainees, New York Times, March 28, 2007. Page: A1). Prisons are overwhelmed by the glut of prisoners.

Poor leadership is a terrible thing; it cascades down an organization and a country. The poor tone set by our President has infected the rest of Government. Surely that, in itself, is a strong argument for his resignation or impeachment.
