This on top of the fact their original premise for war was cherry picked from intelligence that they themselves pushed for or mined themselves:
On the March 16, 2003, broadcast of CBS’ Face the Nation, Cheney stated: “I think [the war will] go relatively quickly.” When host Bob Schieffer pressed the vice president to offer a more precise estimate of how long the war would take, Cheney replied: “Weeks rather than months.” On NBC’s Meet the Press the same day, Cheney stated, “my belief is we will, in fact, be greeted as liberators [by the Iraqi people].”
In a February 7, 2003, appearance at Aviano Air Base in Italy, Rumsfeld projected that the Iraq war “could last six days, six weeks. I doubt six months.”
In a February 13, 2002, Washington Post op-ed, Ken Adelman, at the time a member of the Defense Policy Board, stated: “I believe demolishing Hussein’s military power and liberating Iraq would be a cakewalk. Let me give simple, responsible reasons: (1) It was a cakewalk last time; (2) they’ve become much weaker; (3) we’ve become much stronger; and (4) now we’re playing for keeps.”

The lying neocons need to have their faulty predictions thrown back in their faces on a daily basis. First they use their own crap intelligence then can’t understand why their losing support from the people they snowed into supporting this stupidity.
