In the spring of 2003, General Tommy Franks sends out a warning order to his units: "Prepare to leave Iraq." Only one division is slated to stay. Franks, McKiernan, and Wallace, planners of the invasion, retire shortly thereafter. Donald Rumsfeld who has shown a great deal of interest in waging war against Iraq shows very little interest in occupying it. This is where the end game begins.

Ricardo Sanchez, a junior lieutenant general, takes over command of our forces at the time of a developing insurgency, and this former tank commander has no idea how to fight against one. His request for more troops is ignored while the administration puts its spin on the insurgents as a few "dead-enders." Rumsfeld replaces Sanchez with William Casey, a full general whom no one has heard of. Together, they decide on a new strategy called "the light footprint." It is an exit strategy without victory. Casey will keep all American forces on base with very limited patrols, and train Iraqi forces to take over. In the words of Bush, "as the Iraqis step up, we will stand down." Unfortunately, this strategy has problems. As author Thomas Ricks observes, this is being a war tourist rather than fighting a war. The Shi'ite Militia also decides to test the strategy. They go on a killing rampage. The number of civilian dead rises dramatically throughout Iraq. Four American mercenaries are also killed, burned, and their corpses are hung from a bridge. The administration, which claims non-interference with strategy in Iraq, demands action. General Casey orders an all-out assault on Fallujah.

As one retired lieutenant colonel explains, Fallujah becomes the Shia Alamo, with one difference. The defenders are not wiped out.

This should be watched by anybody with any interest in our involvement in Iraq. As you watch the testimony of those involved directly with the war, many Bush administration appointees and career diplomats, you realize that this inept conduct of managing a war lost it in the first year. It is a very well done revelation of the anatomy of a war crime...the war itself.
