Why Leave Iraq Now?

Retired Lt. Gen. William Odom has some pretty good answers to that question.

And listen Redstate, this guy is an old cold warrior of the Reagan/Bush years, serving as a line officer in Vietnam, and director of the National Security Agency from 1985 to 1988. From 1981 to 1985, he served as assistant chief of staff for intelligence, the Army's senior intelligence officer. From 1977 to 1981, he was military assistant to the president's assistant for national security affairs, Zbigniew Brzezinski.

This is not the anti-American ranting of some slack-jawed pinko hippies, like us here at the wire... this guy is the real thing. And he has arguably one of the most solid takes for getting out of Iraq we have read in a long time. (Granted a lot of the ideas are ones we have been going on about for a while now...)
