CONDI to RUSSERT: FEWER TROOPS WAS BEST
Condi (paraphrased) said, "there were those who argued for a larger footprint which would have left nothing to be done by the Iraqis."
She is boldfaced arguing that fewer troops was a reasoned decision to allow the Iraqis autonomy to construct the new Iraq.
I have never heard such a purposely deceitful philosophical argument in my entire life.
If you deconstruct this argument she argues that looting, twenty thousand dead or injured GIs, 100,000 dead Iraqis and establishing a training ground for thousands of Jihadis is not only acceptable but preferrable to having secured the peace with more troops.
She is a brilliant woman but she is ill served to argue that horseshit does not stink.
