John Sawers Has ESP

This memo is so prescient it's nearly unbelievable. Written write after the fall of Baghdad and shortly before Bremer's arrival, it predicts just about EVERY PROBLEM that would happen in the Iraq Occupation and suggests possible remedies. As it came from a British Envoy, though, it was unsurprisingly ignored by Rumsfeld's Staff. They wouldn't know reality if it gave them an atomic wedgie, and especially if it wrote a memo identifying all their problems and telling them how to solve their problems.
