Northam Still in the Tank
In a report on the US Government's use of the term "civil war" in Iraq, Jackie Northam has on the following analysts: Ret. Army Maj. Gen William Nash, Robert Killebrew, "a retired Army colonel, and now a private defense consultant," Anthony Cordesman a military analyst who has been awarded the Department of Defense Distinguished Service medal, and "retired army general" Barry McCaffrey." Granted that Cordesman and Nash have some very harsh words for the Bush handling of the war, but no one questions the basic premise that the US had the right to invade Iraq and has the right to project its power anywhere in the world it wants. I find it so frustrating that no one gets on NPR to raise these essential questions.
