Major General Tim Cross (left, in civilian attire) the top British officer involved in planning post-war Iraq, said Donald Rumsfeld dismissed the serious concerns he had raised about the possibility of the country descending into chaos.
On Saturday, General Mike Jackson (far left - in uniform), had branded US post-invasion policy "intellectually bankrupt", and blamed Rumsfeld for the current situation in Iraq.
Major General Cross, who is now retired, was deputy head of the coalition's Office of Reconstruction and Humanitarian Assistance. "Right from the very beginning we were all concerned about the lack of detail that had gone into the post-war plan - and there is no doubt that Rumsfeld was at the heart of that process. Rumsfeld apparently did not want to hear about Cross's concerns.
