Hack Kelly, as I call him, once again blames the CIA for everything and Rumsfeld for virtually nothing.
According to Mr. Kelly, it's the CIA's fault that the Department of Defense insisted on trusting Ahmed Chalabi.
He also dismisses the idea that Rumsfeld should have known that we needed more troops, because we defeated Saddam easily with the troops we had, and there is no way that we could have known that we would be facing a protracted guerilla war.
Oh, come on. It was widely predicted that we would need 500,000+ troops to occupy the country after we had defeated Saddam, and James Fallows reported how Rumsfeld bascially shut down all post-war planning because he wante to install Chalabi.
Jack Kelly is either an idiot or a liar. And I don't think he's an idiot.
But then, those who read the Glaivester blog already know that, don't we?
That is all.
