And another thing...with his "Born Fighting" schtick...why isn't he pro Iraq war?
A neighbor of mine confessed she was voting for Webb because he was anti-war. I laughed out loud. "Do you really think Webb, a veteran, a Navy Cross winner, a former Defense Department official, would have voted differently in 2002?"
I don't know, but his son is in the Marines, in Iraq.
Because there was no exit strategy from the get-go. I went searching for info on Webb within the last few days. His website, www.jameswebb.com, has his bio and links to articles he has written in the last few years. He was against invasion of Iraq in November 2002. He predicted that it would take 50ish years of occupation to accomplish our goals there, and, therefore, we should not invade. He was not and is not alone in his thinking on Iraq.
One of his articles is about Cap Weinberger. It's very clear that he loved the man dearly and that he learned much from him.
