    It's about time we started hearing this.....

    Concerning the passage in bold, while "egregious" mistakes may have been made, I actually think the "flypaper" strategy was there all along. I reckon history will tell.

    Looking at how things are going now, though, it would seem that Mistake #2 (Mistake #1 being lousy intel) was not putting General Petraeus in charge of the sandbox from the get-go. I'd love to read that book he wrote on dealing with insurrections and such.

    Off to Amazon to see if I get lucky...

    I emailed Jack Kelly to thank him for writing this story.
