IT’S THE WAY YOU TELL THEM

So far, every one of the emails (just had the 8th) I’ve received on Gen. Dannatt’s comments has spoken only to the propriety of his making them.

That is certainly a legitimate issue, but it’s orthogonal to the issue of whether he is right or wrong.  It was the content of Gen. Dannatt’s remarks that I posted about.  The remarks might be balderdash, yet he might be fully within his rights to make them;  or they might be 100 percent correct while he is a despicable rogue for having made them.  Either thing might be the case. 

But apparently no-one has anything to say about the contents of Gen. Dannatt’s remarks.  Which I suppose tells me something.
