Thank God for the (Military) Republicans!
Part 3 in a series

If you missed 60 Minutes last night, you missed Steve Kroft's interview with retired Marine General Anthony Zinni, former head of the US Central Command and a special envoy to the Middle East, and a registered Republican.
"In the lead up to the Iraq war and its later conduct, I saw at a minimum, true dereliction, negligence and irresponsibility, at worse, lying, incompetence and corruption."

“I believe that they [Rumsfeld and Wolfowitz] should accept responsibility for that. If I were the commander of a military organization that delivered this kind of performance to the president, I certainly would tender my resignation. I certainly would expect to be gone.”

“It is part of your duty. Look, there is one statement that bothers me more than anything else. And that's the idea that when the troops are in combat, everybody has to shut up. Imagine if we put troops in combat with a faulty rifle, and that rifle was malfunctioning, and troops were dying as a result."
Zinni endorsed Bush in 2000, but has compared Iraq war strategy to a "brain fart" emitted from a Bush "policy wonk."
