Juan Cole Blocked by the Thought Police

Well, folks, I received this from an active duty officer with experience in the field. Just how stupid can we become? Eliot Cohen has an OP/ED in the W Post today in which he “examines his conscience” on the whole subject of the “thinking” that has governed the war. The occasion for this is the imminent deployment of his infantry officer son to the war that he helped create AND screw up. He has learned something. It is clear that others have not.

I think it's important to make note of it. Certain people are averse to having soldiers know what's really going. Me oh my, war never changes.
