Pentagon Follies 2

Pentagon Follies 2

It was learned at this performance that the Pentagon does not believe that Iraqi soldiers ability to fight without US military suport is a problem either. According to Rumsfeld "There are an awful lot of people chasing the wrong rabbit here, it seems to me." Funny, but I was under the impression that U.S. forces would not withdraw from Iraq until the Iraq military was capable of defending itself without being supported by the U.S. military. So, when it is revealed that there is now only one (1) battalion capable of fighting without U.S. military aid/assistance, having dropped down from three (3). It is clearly not a matter of chasing rabbits, but chasing down clues to the "stay the course" policy of the Bush administration.

And since we are "chasing rabbits"...there is the critique of Bush his handling of the invasion of Iraq by Retired Army Lt. Gen. William Odom who stated "The invasion of Iraq I believe will turn out to be the greatest strategic disaster in U.S. history."
