Holy claptrap Batman!

I don't even know where to begin with this article by Michael Ledeen. (I found it via a dKos post that pointed to Mr. Ledeen's clear disdain for the troops.)
Excerpt: Note that an increase in embeds doesn’t necessarily require an increase in overall troop strength. We’ve got lots of soldiers sitting on megabases all over Iraq. They should be out and about, some of them embedded, others just moving around, tracking the terrorists, hunting them down. I don’t know how many guys and gals are sitting in air-conditioned quarters and drinking designer coffee, but it’s a substantial number. Enough of that.
It's like "WTF?!!"

But farther down the article, there was this gem.
Excerpt: And the only way to demonstrate a will to win is to go after the Iranians and the Syrians, as well as the terrorists already inside Iraq. God knows the evidence of Syrian involvement is overwhelming, and the latest information reportedly shows they are on both sides of the Sunni/Shiite divide. If we continue to blither ineffectually about how “unhelpful” the mullahs and the Assads are, everyone in those parts will understand that we do not yet have the will to win this war.
I mean, it's mind blowing.

This is the guy who was one of the chief architects of the foundation of lies that led to the Iraq quagmire. He MAY have had something to do with the Niger forgeries. Hell, his blight goes all the way back to the Iran Contra scandal. And as far as I can tell, his military experience is null.



Ugh. There goes my head again.
