Fantasy-based community

And, in a minor little story that didn't get much play at all in press:

The Bush Administration Admits That They Didn't Know What They Were Doing.

Well, that SHOULD be the headline:

The Bush administration is significantly lowering expectations of what can be achieved in Iraq, recognizing that the United States will have to settle for far less progress than originally envisioned during the transition due to end in four months, according to U.S. officials in Washington and Baghdad.

The United States no longer expects to see a model new democracy, a self-supporting oil industry or a society in which the majority of people are free from serious security or economic challenges, U.S. officials say.

"What we expected to achieve was never realistic given the timetable or what unfolded on the ground. We are in a process of absorbing the factors of the situation we're in and shedding the unreality that dominated at the beginning." - Bush adminstration senior official.

Ok - so why the hell are the clowns who were "never realistic" still EMPLOYED?
