The article discusses the errors, bad guesses and miscalculations the administration of U.S. President George W. Bush made on Iraq. The reconstruction of Iraq has proved far more difficult than any official assumed it would be. The group responsible for postwar planning underestimated the cost of reconstructing Iraq. And despite months of searching, the weapons of mass destruction, whose possession by Saddam Hussein had been the principal reason for the war, are still nowhere to be found.
