Deputy Secretary of Defense Paul

Deputy Secretary of Defense Paul Wolfowitz takes issue with reports in the Washington Post of a split between senior civilian and military leadership over planning for potential war. The Post has said that Wolfowitz is predicting that Saddam will fall almost immediately upon being attacked, whereas military leaders are far less optimistic. In this Post op-ed, Wolfowitz claims that there is no split, and that all concerned recognize that the war could be quite difficult and are planning accordingly. Wolfowitz does state that the risks about what might happen after Saddam is toppled have been exaggerated.
