The story of Iraq starts to come out

I have previously posted my questions about why Jay Garner, the retired Army general who had done such a good job with the Kurds prior to the invasion of Iraq, was dismissed so quickly after being assigned the same job in post invasion Iraq. I still don’t know that story but I think it involves a State Department takeover of planning. Now we know that Viceroy Paul Bremer did not even consult Bush before he disbanded the Iraqi Army. That now seems to have been a major blunder. I’d still like to now what happened with Garner.
