Iraq PME: GEN McCaffrey
Mar 07 Update
The attached commentary re Iraq is about as close to the source as you can come without being classified...
The author is General Barry McCaffrey, U.S. Army (Retired), whom I got to know at the Port of Savannah during the emergency loadout of his 24th Armored Infantry Division (Ft. Stewart Georgia) for Operation Desert Shield during late August 1990.
Notice from the letterhead of the enclosure that General McCaffrey is currently an adjunct professor on the faculty of the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, N.Y. His description of the current politico/military situation is stark and realistic.
This is more accurate than anything you will discover in the media.
