This chapter addresses planning for the political elements of the postwar situation. The issue of what to do about post-Saddam governance should have been of preeminent importance to both Bush and Rumsfeld. It bore directly upon their respective goals for Iraq. Yet both men gave only intermittent attention to the planning process, and managed the implementation phase so lightly that the preferences of their chosen agent in Iraq, Ambassador L. Paul Bremer, became as relevant as those of the president and the secretary of defense.
