Problems on the road to Bush's new "Mission Accomp« Thread Started on Jun 15, 2004, 7:26pm »--------------------------------------------------------------------------------Subject: Problems on the road to Bush's new "Mission Accomplished" This is the only article in this thread View: Original Format Newsgroups: talk.politics.misc, alt.politics.bush, alt.politics.liberalism,, alt.rush-limbaugh,, alt.politicsDate: 2004-06-14 12:09:21 PST But like the subsidized oil, the good news keeps flowing.The Associated Press recently revealed that "Misguided U.S. trainingof Iraqi police contributed to the country's instability and hasdelayed getting enough qualified Iraqis on the streets to ease theburden on American forces."Wait a minute, that's not good news either.Who said that?Some commie-pinko-America-hater?Uh, not quite.These are the thoughts of Army Maj. Gen. Paul D. Eaton, the head ofarmed forces training in Iraq."We've had the wrong training focus - on individual cops rather thantheir leaders," he told the AP last week.Well, gee, uh, I guess we hand the country over in two weeks or so...isn't it a bit late to be telling us this?"They basically quit. They told us, 'We're an army for externaldefense and you want us to go to Fallujah?' That was a personalmistake on my part."Whoa, whoa, hold on.This is terrible.You've been doing this for a year, and the whole thing is a flop?How do you explain this?"We thought we were going to be nice and comfortable in a benignenvironment and rebuild this country."Oh, right.
