Andy Sullivan Challenge

I'm a bit tired of doing the same research over and over again, but here's Andy:

[Modo says]
If [Bush] gets more explicit, or allows the flag-draped coffins of fallen heroes to be photographed coming home, it will just remind people that the administration said this would be easy, and it's teeth-grindingly hard.[/Modo]

More calumnies follow. Now the question is: can anyone find a statement from any administration official who said that the post-war reconstruction in Iraq would be "easy." Notice she wrote: "said." Not implied or hoped or suggested. Said. So here's a challenge for all my anti-war readers or anyone else to find such a statement.

Andy's redefining the game here, somewhat, by wanting us to find someone who said explicitly that the "post-war reconstruction in iraq would be 'easy'." So, I don't expect to satisfy his particular game of Calvinball, but nonetheless put suggestions in comments.
