“A former pentagon official said this week that before the start of the war in Iraq, former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld gave the Bush administration a “list of horribles”, things he believed could go wrong. Which the Bush administration mistook for a “to do” list.”

–Amy Poehler, Saturday Night Live’s Weekend Update

(The list actually exists, and its history and the administration’s response is detailed in an excerpt here, from War and Decision by Douglas Feith. In a footnote, it is noted that a similar list could have been drafted with the “horribles” which might result from Saddam Hussein staying in power.)
