General Eric Shinseki was the Army Chief of Staff during the time when the Bush administration was lying it's way to war in Iraq. At a time when the administration was predicting a quick easy war fought by small forces on a very small budget Eric Shinseki told Congress that it would take far more troops, last for years and cost a lot more than the American people were being told. The republican smear machine went into action and all sorts of scurrilous lies were spread, charges made, and General Eric Shinseki was forced to retire. The men taking America to war in Iraq believed their own lies, and would not tolerate any honest criticism. We are disengaging slowly from Iraq after immense expense and bloodshed. We managed to install a pro-Iranian regime there for all our efforts, and we freed Iran of it's enemy Saddam Hussein, and thus freed it to assert itself in the region. Remember General Eric Shinseki and the men who sought an unnecessary war for political and pecuniary reasons. He spoke the truth, they smeared him.
