Powell: I urged Dubyah to send more troops

Former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, National Security Advisior, and Secretary of State Colin Powell says that he told President Bush before the invasion that we would need more troops in Iraq than were sent.

Those advising the President on military matters at the time apparently disagreed. "They were anticipating a different kind of immediate aftermath of the fall of Baghdad," Mr. Powell explained. "It turned out to be not exactly as they had anticipated."
