Listen as recently retired General Paul Eaton discusses incompetence within the Bush administration, particularly with Secretary of Defense Rumsfeld.
Discussion from April 6th.
Listen to discussion here.
Surely there are other high ranking officers in the U.S. military, both past and present, who have misgivings about how the war in Iraq is being handled and about the direction of U.S. foreign policy. However, they may be reluctant to speak out.
Let's not forget that there have been several other high ranking officers and civilians who have spoken out against the problems in the current government. Many people may have forgotten about the group, Diplomats and Military Commanders for Change- a group of over 2 dozen high ranking former military and civilian officials who came out against the Bush administration in 2004. The problem for this group was that the mainstream corporate media (State-run media) basically muzzled this group and did not allow them to get their message out.
But the dissenters are out there. It's just a matter of finding those who are brave enough and willing to speak publicly.
