What does ex-military writer think of Bush now?

Four and a half years after this president ordered the invasion of Iraq in a gross act of arrogance and ignorance based on faulty, bogus and politically twisted intelligence — and after repeatedly changing the rationales and objectives of the war as each has failed in turn — we’re going to continue this war because George W. Bush is incapable of admitting that he was wrong, wrong, wrong.

Leaving aside all the happy talk we heard this week about how much better the security picture is in Baghdad, the fact is that the escalation or surge has failed utterly.
Joe Galloway is the co-author, with Lt. Gen. Hal Moore, of We Were Soldiers Once ... and Young, a story of the first large-scale ground battle of the Vietnam War.
