VDH on Rumsfeld and the Generals' Dissent

Criticism of Secretary Rumsfeld continues to be big news, despite the President's strong endorsement yesterday.

Victor David Hanson has a terrific post today on the subject, entitled "The Jackal and the General", where he argues convincingly that these Generals would have better served their country by pursuing their concerns privately:

If these generals are sincerely concerned for the troops they once led, if they believe that both they and the nation will best be served by doing something different from what’s being done, then they should privately give that advice to their Congressional representatives. At this point, to publicly second-guess the management of the war by scapegoating the Rumsfeld–– as though there were some obvious, easy way to fight the war that the Secretary of Defense arrogantly ignored — only serves partisan politics and encourages our enemies.


This is an excellent post. Read the whole thing.
