CHIEF WIGGLES SAYS THAT WE'RE DROPPING THE BALL on an important item in Iraq -- a bunch of generals who surrendered without firing a shot, and are still in custody:
In their minds they would have been better off had they just ran to their homes like the other 9,000 plus brigadier generals in the Iraqi military. They regret having trusted us enough to turn over their bases, their ships and aircraft, and their men, in hopes that we would reward them for doing so. They just want to see their families and do their part in reconstructing their country.
I don't know the merits of this at all, but somebody should look into this.
