Rice Advisor:: "Iraq Invasion Was Fucking Stupid"

No... it's not the Onion. It's for real.

Priceless quote (this is from one of Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice's advisors, let's not forget):

More bluntly, Kilcullen, who helped Petraeus design his 2007 counterinsurgency strategy in Iraq, called the decision to invade Iraq "stupid" -- in fact, he said "fucking stupid" -- and suggested that if policy-makers apply the manual's lessons, similar wars can be avoided in the future.


"The biggest stupid idea," Kilcullen said, "was to invade Iraq in the first place."


(Sigh)... Only, what... several TRILLION dollars too late. Brilliant.
