If you're not into the whole brevity thing...

Pretty much sums it all up, yeah?
BAGHDAD — An unpublished 513-page federal history of the American-led reconstruction of Iraq depicts an effort crippled before the invasion by Pentagon planners who were hostile to the idea of rebuilding a foreign country, and then molded into a $100 billion failure by bureaucratic turf wars, spiraling violence and ignorance of the basic elements of Iraqi society and infrastructure.
Why am I not surprised that it took over 500 pages to explain how inept this reconstruction cash grab effort has been? Heckuva job.
