don't listen to me...listen to republicans...
--Chuck Hagel, Republican Senator from Nebraska
"We made serious mistakes right after the initial successes by not having enough troops there on the ground, by allowing the looting, by not securing the borders. There were a number of things that we did. Most of it can be traced back to not having sufficient numbers of troops there."
--John McCain, Republican Senator from Arizona
"Our committee heard blindly optimistic people from the administration prior to the war and people outside the administration -- what I call the ‘dancing in the street’ crowd -- that we just simply will be greeted with open arms. The nonsense of all that is apparent. The lack of planning is apparent."
--Richard Lugar, Republican Senator from Indiana
