Rumsfeld's goof, which was apparent to me many days ago, will, imo, go down in history as one of the greatest screw-ups in military history.

The article lays open the possibility, without stating it explicitly, that the US may actually be DEFEATED in Iraq! Let alone if Syria and iran attack US forces in Iraq, as Rumsfeld seems to be provoking them into doing.

Before the war started I read in Time mag. that Rumsfeld was 'in control'. According to the article there was conflict between the military & Rumfeld about CIA operatives & the military Special Forces, on who SB doing what.

On BBC news, Thur. or Fri. AM, a reporter in the field were saying that the forces heading for Bagdad were on limited rations, only one meal per day instead of three. Infact the reporter pretty much supported the article you posted & the one below.

One would think with ALL the $$$ that's being poured into war there'd be enough of everything. Bad planning's no excuse they've been getting ready for this campaign since the calculated & aggressive "axis of evil" speech. Otherwise why would such an inflamatory speech be made.
