At the time there were many growing variables already that it might work or even if it might minimize the sectarian divide that the bushco and their rubber stamping congresses already had caused by totally destroying that pandora's box! Having led the cheering country into Quickly abandoning the missions and those sent to accomplish after 9/11 the growth and spread of the al Qaeda type of international terrorism had already began, recruiting to build the ranks and spreading outside of that region were the gifts bushco gave to the once CIA assets and good friends bin Laden and Saddam who couldn't stand each other.
Jun 21, 2014 - In 2006, Biden was a senator from Delaware gearing up for a presidential campaign when he proposed that Iraq be divided into three semi-independent regions for Shiites, Sunnis and Kurds. Follow his plan, he said, and U.S. troops could be out by early 2008. Ignore it, he warned, and Iraq would devolve into sectarian conflict that could destabilize the whole region.
The Bush administration chose to ignore Biden. Now, eight years later, the vice president's doom-and-gloom prediction seems more than a little prescient.
Old sectarian tensions have erupted with a vengeance as Sunni militants seize entire cities and the United States faults the Shiite prime minister for shunning Iraq's minorities. While the White House isn't actively considering Biden's old plan, Mideast experts are openly questioning whether Iraq is marching toward an inevitable breakup along ethnic lines.

By the time the administrations changed, with this country walking away from any and all accountability and leaving everything on the table, including spying on our own, it was way too late. Bushco had their puppet, second choice as they wanted Chalibi, who they thought they could control, wrong as he went towards Iran and he was now embedded in the power with the bushco helping him in the choices of sectarianism!!
The spread of the ideologies, seeking blowback in any form, and their numbers had grown!!
Great job cheney!!
