Right-wing dorkball* Michael Ledeen has discovered why Iraq has not gone exactly as planned:
Note that an increase in embeds doesn’t necessarily require an increase in overall troop strength. We’ve got lots of soldiers sitting on megabases all over Iraq. They should be out and about, some of them embedded, others just moving around, tracking the terrorists, hunting them down. I don’t know how many guys and gals are sitting in air-conditioned quarters and drinking designer coffee, but it’s a substantial number. Enough of that.
It was the “designer coffee.” Not a complete failure of strategy, intelligence, foreign policy, tactics, or logistics.
It was the damn coffee. You see, if we used a good American coffee like Folgers, not one of those pansy liberal coffees, things would have been much better.
How did such a loon ever get taken seriously?
A serious note: In his article, Ledeen states that things would be much better if we also did ‘regime change’ in Syria and Iran. Death, double or nothing! WHEEEEEE! These guys just can’t be taken seriously.
*I don’t know what a ‘dorkball’ would even be, but after re-reading Ledeen’s idiotic column, the word somehow seems appropriate.
