Pentagon Hack Whines About Hillary, Iraq
One of Cheney's remaining hacks at the Pentagon, undersecretary of neocon propaganda Eric Edelman, sent Hillary Clinton a mean letter telling her to shut up about the withdrawal of troops from Iraq that everybody knows is going to happen on some level pretty soon, including everybody at the Pentagon and everybody in Iraq.
So why is Edelman threatening Hillary? Because "premature and public discussion of the withdrawal of U.S. forces from Iraq reinforces enemy propaganda that the United States will abandon its allies in Iraq, much as we are perceived to have done in Vietnam, Lebanon and Somalia," according to Edelman's angry little letter. In other words, everybody knows the United States is going to bail just like it always does after the defense contractors make their billions and the intentionally-failed war is "lost" and the "liberated people" get screwed, again, but people running for president can't talk about that, unless they're Republicans and they don't actually mention how the world's biggest, richest military once again got its ass kicked by a handful of punks.
Hillary's campaign responded by saying she's going directly to Bob Gates to get Edelman fired.
