General Eaton rips Bush-Cheney MIlitary Competence

Retired General Paul Eaton served in the U.S. Army for more than thirty years, including two years he spent training Iraqi troops after the Bush Administration hastily moved troops and resources away from Afghanistan to pursue its war in Iraq. After his retirement in 2006, he wasn't exactly shy about criticizing the Bush Administration's tactics in Iraq.

Eaton is now a Senior Adviser to the National Security Network, and he's a little annoyed at Dick Cheney's recent remarks that President Obama ought to stop "dithering" about Afghanistan and get onto winning, what with the war still going on there as a result of Cheney's insistence on ignoring Afghanistan in favor of Iraq. Eaton had some sharp words for Cheney this morning.

The record is clear: Dick Cheney and the Bush administration were incompetent war fighters. They ignored Afghanistan for 7 years with a crude approach to counter-insurgency warfare best illustrated by: 1. Deny it. 2. Ignore it. 3. Bomb it.

Eaton is likely not alone
