Gen Butler Complains to Guardian about Lies in Article

#1
General Butler wrote a scathing letter to the Guardian which was published in their letters section yesterday. The letter starts with the paragraph

Your front-page story (Iraq war cost years of progress, October 18) paints a misleading and mischievous picture of what I said at a media briefing on Tuesday. It omits some of my comments and extrapolates meaning and intention from others which is completely false. I did not say the operation in Iraq had cost "years of progress" in Afghanistan; I did not say it had left "a dangerous vacuum"; and I did not say that British soldiers faced a tougher task now because of it.

Many thanks to not_finished_yet for introducing it onto the aviation forum which drew my attention to it..

Edited to include, and thanks also to hansvonhealing who introduced it to the Afghan thread

When was he promoted?
Last time I saw him he was still a Brigadier.
