A Matter Of Opinion

The trouble with Harry Reid …

“And as long as we follow the President’s path in Iraq, the war is lost.”

Here’s the opening of a scathing critique of military leadership authored by Army Lt. Col. Paul Yingling in the Armed Forces Journal:

“For the second time in a generation, the United States faces the prospect of defeat at the hands of an insurgency.”
