Headline: General Ricardo Sanchez's Book Slams Bush, Iraq Handling…

…and the bush 'evil twin' theorem is being brought up for another round of fighting with yet another 'disgruntled employee,' this time it's general Ricardo Sanchez who has also written a book highly critical of bushco.

See this article:
The Washington Post points out that in the hubbub of the McClellan book, another scathing memoir has come out exposing the truth behind Iraq.

Getting lost in the media furor over McClellan's memoir is the new autobiography of retired Lt. Gen. Ricardo S. Sanchez, the onetime commander of U.S. troops in Iraq, who is scathing in his assessment that the Bush administration "led America into a strategic blunder of historic proportions."[…]

During a videoconference with his national security team and generals, Sanchez writes, Bush launched into what he described as a "confused" pep talk:

"Kick ass!" he quotes the president as saying. "If somebody tries to stop the march to democracy, we will seek them out and kill them! We must be tougher than hell! This Vietnam stuff, this is not even close. It is a mind-set. We can't send that message. It's an excuse to prepare us for withdrawal."

"There is a series of moments and this is one of them. Our will is being tested, but we are resolute. We have a better way. Stay strong! Stay the course! Kill them! Be confident! Prevail! We are going to wipe them out! We are not blinking!"
A White House spokesman, well known for her empty-headed analysis and loquaciousness, had no immediate comment except to say that this amply demonstrates how difficult it is to fight a war with generals promoted up through the ranks of the Boy Scouts of America.

She also said, "[T]his is really indicative of the 'Changed/changing Personality Disorder' currently running amok in America today. This book sounds as if it were written by a Cub Scout ghostwriter and never actually seen or read by General Sanchez, whom I know personally and feel great sadness at the fall of this formerly great officer, a fall obviously precipitated by the local Girl Scout troops known to be operating covertly in every publisher's office to insure that right-wing writers that switch to telling the truth for a change become unrecognizable. Why, you can already see that the general is over a foot taller, 60 pounds heavier, and he will soon have his hair bleached blond, making his transformation complete.

It's the same way that bushco helped me change. I used to be a short, fat, swarthy man in a toupee."
