A tribute to Condoleeza Rice and George W. Bush who, despite voluminious evidence to the contrary, said, "I don't think anybody could have predicted that these people would take an airplane and slam it into the World Trade Center, take another one and slam it into the Pentagon, that they would try to use an airplane as a missile," adding that "even in retrospect" there was "nothing" to suggest that" and "I don't think anyone anticipated the breach of the levees," respectively.

Going for a 3 fer 

9/11, Katrina, and now the violence in Iraq. Cheney admits they were too stupid to predict an insurgency and the level of violence.

Q: Do you think that you underestimated the insurgency's strength?

Cheney: I think so, umm I guess, the uh, if I look back on it now. I don't think anybody anticipated the level of violence that we've encountered....

What's next? Nobody predicted that unguarded warehouses full of high explosive would be looted.

Nobody predicted that the indigenous population would see us as invaders when we didn't leave after the "liberation."
