Willful Ignorance

Ok, so I'm officially on record as saying that Douglas J. Feith is a despicable human being and would be better off dead.

But another waste of flesh who led the US into the quagmire of Iraq was Paul Wolfowitz and Phil Carter applies some well-deserved censure today.

So Wolfie, it's simply not true that the American government was "clueless" about counterinsurgency. Not true at all. Rather, officials like you chose to keep yourselves in the dark by refusing counsel from those who knew something about counterinsurgency. And you actively stifled dissenting views by criticizing officers like Shinseki as "wildly off the mark." Clueless is not the word I would use to describe your mistakes. |Intel Dump|
