Today, CBS is reporting that more retired generals are harshly criticizing Herr Rumsfeld and the Neoconservative strategy of illegally invading Iraq.
Yesterday, a classified NIE was leaked stating that the Neocon’s illegal invasion of Iraq has increased the threat of terrorism. It also reveals that the Bush administration is covering up their blunders and stubbornly “staying the course.”
Retired Maj. Gen. Paul Eaton, assessed Rumsfeld as “incompetent strategically, operationally and tactically.” “Mr. Rumsfeld and his immediate team must be replaced or we will see two more years of extraordinarily bad decision-making,” he added.
Retired Maj. Gen. John R. S. Batiste said Rumsfeld at one point threatened to fire the next person who mentioned the need for a postwar plan in Iraq.
Batiste said if full consideration had been given to the requirements for war, it’s likely the U.S. would have kept its focus on Afghanistan, “not fueled Islamic fundamentalism across the globe, and not created more enemies than there were insurgents.”
