U.S. underestimated Iraq political problems: Gates

By Andrew Gray | August 2, 2007
ABU DHABI (Reuters) - Defense Secretary Robert Gates said on Thursday the United States had probably underestimated how hard it would be for Iraqi political leaders to agree reconciliation measures.

Gates, speaking at the end of a Middle East tour, also said he had urged countries in the region to redouble efforts to pressure Iran over its nuclear program, declaring "there's not really room for bystanders."


"We probably all underestimated the depth of the mistrust and how difficult it would be for these guys to come together on legislation which, let's face it, is not just some sort of secondary kind of thing," Gates said.

No, we did not ALL "underestimate" the difficulties we faced. The Republicans and the Warmongering Bushistas did.

Many of us DFH's were shouting quite loudly that this was going to happen.
