Iraq: In Deep
In this week's Newsweek, Gen. Jack Keane, former Army vice chief of staff, talks about going to Iraq in 2003, just before leaving his post and just as the insurgency started in the country:
I went to Iraq in June, looked at it and I knew we were
in deep s---. I was going out the door. I felt
frustrated. Frustrated with the situation, frustrated with myself and everything else. And somewhat guilty because I knew how ill prepared the Army was to deal with it.
"It seems incredible, in retrospect, that the Army had no strategy for battling insurgents after the invasion," the magazine reports.
