Listen to the Generals

The people who know best say that we need to stay in Iraq.

Among other reasons, it's worth noting -- in a news tidbit not reported by the MSM -- that the National Intelligence Estimate points up the dangers of Al Qaeda in Iraq, as Steve Huntley writes:

After all, the National Intelligence Estimate released last week also said Osama bin Laden's organization will "probably seek to leverage the contacts and capabilities of al-Qaida in Iraq, its most visible and capable affiliate and the only one known to have expressed a desire to attack the Homeland." Furthermore, the 9/11 Commission has said another attack on America by Islamist terrorists is inevitable, and a new threat assessment a week ago from the National Counterterrorism Center suggested al-Qaida is working to renew attacks on America. Now we're told al-Qaida in Iraq could be the agent for it.

Two more years of training them to stand up so we can stand down. That isn't a new strategy and the NIE predicted and later proved that strategy is a failure, making the US less safe. An Iraqi government official has already stated that the US military is making a big mistake in trusting and equipping various Sunni militia in Anbar. He predicts that they will turn on the Iraqi government and the US military.

What about all those generals who think the war was wrong? Do politicians (especially ones in the GOP) follow their advice? Or do they only listen to generals who say what they want to hear?

Salient,

How many on that list are generals and how many are simply democrats with some military experience?

The left will never prevail so long as they continue to rely on smoke and mirrors instead of facts and reason.
