Batiste on Iraq

General Batiste is not antiwar. But I agree with him insofar as the futility of the occupation and non-necessity of invasion. I wonder how many military personnel are becoming more sympathetic and in line with antiwar views given the sheer idiocy of the current policies in Iraq.

You can view a segment he did on Olbermann's Countdown here on
Batiste: Keith, this is less about deadlines and timelines than it is about coming to grips with the fact that we went to war with a fatally flawed strategy, flawed then in March of 2003, flawed today over four years later. This is all about a president who's relying almost solely on the military component of strategy to accomplish the mission in Iraq.

Sadly, we're missing the diplomatic, the political, and the economic components that are fundamental and required to be successful...
