I don't believe anyone will be able to sustain a strong case in the short run without going back to the fundamental misjudgment of invading Iraq in the first place. Once the enormity of that error is grasped, the case for pulling out becomes easy to see.  -- Lt. Gen. William E. Odom, U.S. Army (Ret.), Senior Fellow with Hudson Institute and a professor at Yale University, Director of the National Security Agency from 1985 to 1988.

Read the rest of his "What's wrong with cutting and running?"

Everything that opponents of a pullout say would happen if the U.S. left Iraq is happening already, says retired Gen. William E. Odom, the head of the National Security Agency during the Reagan administration. So why stay?
