Nobody Could Have Predicted

That the Bush administration would spend a lot of money to start an Arab TV network, have it be run by people who didn't speak Arabic and had no idea what was being broadcast, and end up broadcasting things which encouraged sectarian divisions in Iraq...

Actually, admittedly, even I would have had a hard time predicting that one as message control seems to be the one thing they're obsessed with. Still I suppose that "allergic to anyone who actually might speak Arabic" trumped that.
