The State Department's Future of Iraq Project, the most extensive Iraq postwar planning conducted by the federal government, is now publically available for the first time at The Memory Hole, albeit partially redacted. The $5 billion Future of Iraq Project, which accurately predicted many of the problems in the postwar occupation, was mostly ignored1 by the Bush administration. Its director, Thomas Warrick, was removed from Jay Garner's Iraq planning team at the insistence of Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld. (Rumsfeld told Garner that the request came from a level higher than himself, i.e. the president or vice president).
