Remove Saddam and leave whoever was left to fight for succession? Is that what you thought the mission was?

The president didn't outline a clearly defined mission. He never said that we will take out Saddam, find the WMD and bring democracy to Iraq. If he said that, provide a link that shows that.

Casualties have increased over time. You don't need to be a general to see that:

The exit strategy was never clearly defined. That was a complaint of many right out of the blocks

By whom?

Powell for one, by virtue of his "You break it you buy it comment" he was saying what is the plan here? You need a plan before you can have an exit plan. Powell was simply saying what is the plan? There was no plan articulated.

If the President clearly stated the plan before we went to war, I missed it.
