The US Army’s Contemporary Operations Study Team hates America (via The AssPress):
A nearly 700-page study released Sunday by the Army found that “in the euphoria of early 2003,” U.S.-based commanders prematurely believed their goals in Iraq had been reached and did not send enough troops to handle the occupation.
President George W. Bush’s statement on May 1, 2003, that major combat operations were over reinforced that view, the study said.
And “Bring it on! Heh.” Just pissed everyone the fuck off.
It was written by Donald P. Wright and Col. Timothy R. Reese of the Combat Operations Study Team [sic] at Fort Leavenworth, Kan., who said that planners who requested more troops were ignored and that commanders in Baghdad were replaced without enough of a transition and lacked enough staff.
You are without a doubt not at all shocked by this non-shocking revelation.
At first it may seem that only consequence of this study is fRiechtards will add the Combat Studies Institute, the Contemporary Operations Studies Team, Dr. Donald Wright, Colonel Timothy Reese and General William Wallace to the list of people and things who want the terrists to win because they dared to say that things are less than 100% peachy keen in Iraq.
But I for one am glad that someone who understands this shit is taking notes and writing everything down, and I’m glad they took 700 pages to do so.
Because the next time some gibbering wanna-be cow poke gets in the White House* and wants to play War President, a member of the military can whack him on the nose with this bad boy. “No! Bad President! That’s a bad, bad, President!”
