Worst Case Scenario

The most interesting thing about Rummy's worst-case scenarios (see below) is that the Administration never informed the public about any of those disasterous consequences. And, of course, while the WSJ review of Doug E. Feith's book doesn't include Rummy's entire list, the deaths and mutilations of tens of thousands of Americans and hundreds of thousands Iraqi noncombatants are conspicuous by their absence from the parade of horribles. Perhaps Rummy and Feith didn't foresee those outcomes. Or perhaps they didn't consider them worst-case.

For a fuller look a Feith, check out Athenae's FDL post, Throwing the Book at Douglas Feith.
