Afghan progress hit by Iraq says Brigadier Ed Butler

#1
LONDON (Reuters) - The decision to divert forces to invade Iraq cost the West years of progress in Afghanistan, the outgoing commander of British forces in Afghanistan said on Tuesday.

The comments by Brigadier Ed Butler, who returned this week from commanding the British contingent, were the second implicit criticism of government policy on Iraq from the military's top brass in less than a week.

The people that made the wrong choices back then are still making bad decisions today.

If he wins the next one Im emigrating!
