See, it's never these kinds of generals they interview. Always the Clinton butt-whores, chip on their shoulders at the President's third cousin's brother, or the "surrender now" types.
Gen. DeLong has been TV since his retirement. Alltheweb his name and you'll find some transcripts from CNN and it looks like he's also been on O'reilly.
And so many people have decided against the war JUST BECAUSE OF THE GENERALS THE MEDIA HAVE ROUNDED UP to gainsay Rumsfield and thePresident. Had a friend say just today (a Republican) that she wished Bush had dumped Rumsfield earlier--he must have been bad because so many military, esp. general officers have said so. I informed her that a handful of handpicked generals, now retired, had said so, but that there are hundreds of active duty generals as well as hundreds of retired. They could find many, many more generals who respected Rumsfield and the President. However, that would not fit the Dem/lib/media/celib agenda. People tend to believe there are only a very few generals.
Also, people don't know or forget that many in the military had their pet projects thwarted by Rummie as he updated the military complex.
Laurie Mylroie is perhaps the one exception. She is a former Clinton person -- among many other roles -- and she seems to get the short-shrift by the media anyway. Why? Because she is expert at detailing what went on in Iraq as far as WMDs. So the media treats her like a pariah of sorts.
Before we went into Iraq, she was a media darling though.
