"To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." Theodore Roosevelt

Reagan's NSA Director: If We Stay, Iraq Will Only Get Worse



General Odom, Reagan's head of the National Security Agency, asserts that once we invaded Iraq we set in motion a group of forces that has taken us to a point of chaos, we can't change that by staying longer -- we can only make it worse. We essentially invaded for other people's interests, without understanding it. This in turn created a situation inside Iraq that's leading to a regime that will most likely be an Islamic Republic similar to Iran. Odom also states that the idea of a "War on Terrorism" is ridiculous, and diverting our attention to Iraq greatly undermined our defeat of al-Qaida. The best course of action we can take now is to get out of Iraq and build a coalition with our allies to oversee the region (video).
