Bremer

I see where Jerry Bremer is beating up on the Pentagon for the “sin” of not having enough troops for Viceroy Bremer to deploy where and when he wished. No big surprise there; he’s a State Dept guy, after all. But somebody might think to point out that he was a driving force behind the catastrophic decision to call off the Marines just as they were on the verge of smashing the terrorist enclave in Fallujah. And that wasn’t because we lacked troops. It was because we lacked will. He was afraid the Sunnis on the Governing Council were going to resign, and that would make him look bad…so let’s keep proper perspective on who’s responsible for what in Iraq, ok?
