not as good as they thought...

The Liberal Avenger has a link to an article in the Washington Post titled
"U.S. Lowers Sights On What Can Be Achieved in Iraq"

Though the title surprised me a bit, this quote I had to read a couple times.

"What we expected to achieve was never realistic given the timetable or what unfolded on the ground," said a senior official involved in policy since the 2003 invasion. "We are in a process of absorbing the factors of the situation we're in and shedding the unreality that dominated at the beginning."

That, to me, is just a flat out acknowledgment that BushCo's Pollyanna world was just that - unrealistic unreality.
