The truth on the Ground in Iraq

Major Ben Connable tells readers of the Washington Post why he still fights in Iraq….the truth is far from the story the leftwing MSM and the woofters of the Democrat party, and indeed Helen Clark would have us believe.

The common wisdom seems to be that Iraq is an unwinnable war and a quagmire and that the only thing left to decide is how quickly we withdraw. Depending on which poll you believe, about 60 percent of Americans think it’s time to pull out of Iraq.

How is it, then, that 64 percent of U.S. military officers think we will succeed if we are allowed to continue our work? Why is there such a dramatic divergence between American public opinion and the upbeat assessment of the men and women doing the fighting?

The impression of Iraq as an unfathomable quagmire is false and dangerously misleading.
