It sure sounds fishy.
According to Time Magazine, Senator Warner (head of the Senate Armed Services Committee) and two other senators held a private meeting with 10 Iraq war commanders, skipping their Pentagon superiors. They wanted to get some unvarnished truth from them, and apparently, the commanders complained that they do NOT have enough troops to do the job! Not only that, but they've asked
for it repeatedly, and been denied.
Why are Bush and Rumsfeld refusing to send enough troops to do the job? I hate to say it, but it looks like they took their position and now refuse to back down for political reasons, even though it's costing American lives. I'm really becoming disillusioned with their prosecution of the war. Quote under the fold.
