Now You Tell Us...

From the New York Times:

[The top American military commander for the Middle East, Gen. John P. Abizaid] also publicly said for the first time that the American position in Iraq had been undermined by the Bush administration's decision not to deploy a larger force to stabilize the country in 2003. That decision was made after Gen. Eric K. Shinseki, the Army chief of staff at the time, told Congress that several hundred thousand troops would be needed. His testimony was derided by Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld, and the general was ostracized at the Pentagon before his retirement a few months later.
Took you long enough.

But don't worry, a strong dose of 'stay the course' will cure you of your doubts, and if not, you'll go the way of Gen. Shineski and Donald Rumsfeld...
