After viewing this piece, you gain insight into the dynamics and inner workings of the Administration and Pentagon. The ghost of Vietnam is looming in the background. Many of these Ol Boys who had their hands in Vietnam appear to have undue influence on the show in Iraq today. The story suggest, we find ourselves again getting bogged down in War, due to Civilian planner interference, either they have not learned past lessons, which would suggest incompetence. Or the intent from the beginning was to break things so you can later offer a solution to fix them. These are the only logical conclusions I could arrive at for now. I recognized more of the Civilian sector patterns of sidestepping, going around, and steam rolling right over the experts.

This Planning went against the Powell Doctrine; he opposed many things and was shut out. I cant wait to hear what he has to say after the election, and for the books to come out about this.
