Bob Herbert commentary:
From dream to nightmare "Reality was the first casualty of
Iraq. This was a war that would be won on the cheap, we were told, with
few American casualties. The costs of reconstruction would be more than

painted all the buildings. There is no justification for this increase.
I am livid.
