An Admiral in charge of CENTCOM, and a General in charge of Iraq disagreeing about strategy. Yeah, Who'd a thunk it ?

Vigorous debate in Bush administration over Iraq strategy

Washington Post:

For two hours, President Bush listened to contrasting visions of the U.S. future in Iraq. Gen. David H. Petraeus dominated the conversation by video link from Baghdad, making the case to keep as many troops as long as possible to cement any security progress. Adm. William J. Fallon, his superior, argued instead for accepting more risks in Iraq, officials said, in order to have enough forces available to confront other potential threats in the region.

Wonderful. The thing is, we could have done with this vigourous debate, oh I don't know, 5 years ago?

Still, it's nice that the committee has finally convened to discuss how to re-arrange the deck chairs on the Titanic.
