    Reagan era NSA chief plots a course out of Iraq

    Basically it flips the debate from anti-war activists somehow being guilty of not supporting the troops to the reality that places that accusation at the door of the White House.

    Here's a snip:
    If the Democrats truly want to succeed in forcing President Bush to begin withdrawing from Iraq, the first step is to redefine "supporting the troops" as withdrawing them, citing the mass of accumulating evidence of the psychological as well as the physical damage that the president is forcing them to endure because he did not raise adequate forces. Both Democrats and Republicans in Congress could confirm this evidence and lay the blame for "not supporting the troops" where it really belongs – on the president. And they could rightly claim to the public that they are supporting the troops by cutting off the funds that he uses to keep U.S. forces in Iraq.

    That was Lieutenant General William E. Odom, U.S. Army (Ret.), a Senior Fellow with the conservative Hudson Institute. He's been quoted as calling the invasion of Iraq the "greatest strategic disaster in United States history."
