The following quote pretty much sums up Iraq: "The same policymakers who assumed that Iraq would be a cakewalk now assume that the hard-to-predict consequences of leaving will be vastly worse than the demonstrated costs of hanging on."

But are we to grant them a mulligan for getting Iraq completely wrong, assuming no one is perfect and they deserve another chance? Don't think so, for one because this war was not all about a single, huge decision but instead has been comprised of many decisions. So these guys are not 0-1 but rather more like 0-58. They've been wrong, repeatedly. It's called incompetence.
