Though not a headline grabber like WMD, the US claim of surprise at the condition of Iraq infrastructure is either an intelligence failure of surreal proportion or else a bald-faced lie.
AP via Houston Chronicle (http://www.chron.com/cs/CDA/ssistory.mpl/nation/2604187)
the White House deputy budget chief, Joel Kaplan, blamed the war's costs on "unanticipated events" like the bad condition of Iraq's infrastructure and the prolonged violent resistance

Infrastructure is not a 'sexy' subject. If they had bothered to ask, I am sure the CIA could have told them what state it was in.
