“There is no question that America is living a nightmare with no end in sight.”
From Stars and Stripes:
The former top commander of U.S. troops in Iraq slammed the handling of the war and gave a bleak assessment of the current situation in Iraq.
“There is no question that America is living a nightmare with no end in sight,” retired Lt. Gen. Ricardo Sanchez told a convention of military journalists on Friday.
“From a catastrophically flawed, unrealistically optimistic war plan, to the administration’s latest surge strategy, this administration has failed to employ and synchronize the political, economic and military power,” Sanchez said.
Continuing changes to military strategy alone will not achieve victory, rather it will only “stave off defeat,” he said.
“The administration, Congress and the entire inter-agency, especially the State Department, must shoulder the responsibility for this catastrophic failure and the American people must hold them accountable.”
“I think once you are retired, you have a responsibility to the nation, to your oath, to the country, to state your opinion,” he said.
Ouch, that’s going to leave a mark.
And look for the nutters to do everything possible to destroy Sanchez’s reputation as a balm for the sting on their swollen behinds. You know, the area that serves as holsters for their heads.
