State Department back in charge

One of the most radical, and bone-headed, early policy moves by the Bush Junior administration in Iraq was to make the Pentagon responsible for the reconstruction of Iraq rather than the traditional candidate, the State Department.   It was a intensely ideological move that flew in the face of common sense and precedent.

Well, this has been such a failure that even W has had to say uncle and return the reins to State.
