Guardian: Scale of Iraq insurgency unforeseen, says MoD

The government admitted yesterday that it had failed to foresee the scale of potential insurgency in Iraq and that the invasion had left a "strategic vacuum" in the country.

The admissions were made in the government's official response to a highly critical Commons defence committee report on the handling of post-war operations in Iraq.


The Ministry of Defence admitted that "while some planning took place to deal with the likely disaffection following the invasion of Iraq, an insurgency on the scale that subsequently followed was not foreseen."
