Our Generals Almost Cost Us Iraq

Our Generals Almost Cost Us Iraq” is an interesting analysis by Mackubin Thomas Owens.  It is based on Woodwards book: The War Within: A Secret White House History 2006-2008 .  Owens’ analysis is provocative and has moved Woodward up on my list books that I have to read.  I’m not sure if Woodward’s research and conclusions is completely to be trusted, or if Owens’ analysis is on the mark.  Anything written or said during the political season has to be considered with a grain of salt.  It does, however, reinforce my belief that the historiography of the W. Bush administration is going to be very significant as it’s written over the course of the up-coming decades.  Owens is a prolific commentator, and though I don’t agree with some of his analysis, he is interesting –its worth looking at  the archive of some of his writings.
