I don't know if there was a failure. From what I'm looking at it looks more like an out right attempt to destroy Pope. James McPherson in Battle Cry of Freedom apparently quotes a letter he wrote to his wife prior to 2nd Bull Run (2nd Manassas) in which he calls Pope a villian and expect's Lee to get rid of him.
