It is clear that many commanders have not had the courage of Shinsecki, or the opportunity. I'm not sure what Shinsecki would have done had Congress not asked the question. General Sanchez made a different choice or at least appeared to do so. But, if you caught his recent speech and the Q&A afterwards, he was making his complaints internally. And to this day, Congress is still not asking the right questions of the Buh Administration, like: When is the US going to properly resource the political and economic efforts in Iraq which all agree is the only path to "victory" in Iraq. The State Department and Commerce Department are MIA in Iraq.
