Iraq: What about the terrible aftermath to withdrawal?

William Odom, a retired US general and former head of the important but little-known National Security Agency, has been arguing for some time that the longer the US stays in Iraq, the worse things will get. He wrote a opinion piece in the Washington Post on February 11 called Victory is not an Option. More interesting is an interview from February 15 which argues his position at greater length. Worth reading.

I was particularly glad to see him rebut the classic idiot line that the current reviled dictator is Adolf Hitler in 1938 and any policy but war to the knife is appeasement -- "Munich."
