More than the usual quantity of emails presuming a) the Ledeens never risked their lives for their country, and b) somehow people with military experience have special authority on the subject of war and peace.

And then I encourage them to read The War Against the Terror Masters, in which I said it was the wrong war in the wrong place at the wrong time, and predicted the current situation.
