Admiral William Fallon, who is about to become the top American commander in the Middle East, says that the U.S. experience in Iraq:
"Securing the stability of the country has been more difficult than anticipated...Our ability to correctly assess the political, economic and security situation in Iraq has been lacking."

In recognition of this brilliant tactical observation, the Admiral has been nominated for the prestigious Understatement of the Year award from the International Society of the Painfully Obvious.
