Sunday's US News and World Report has a short article that wanders across a few different topics related to Iraq. And they seem to have found someone inside The Pentagon that speaks rather, ahem, directly. Near the end of the article is this little gem from a senior defense official:
"Rumsfeld is thinking Hitler, fascists, the guy on top. It's so old school it's almost like the Cold War: The center of gravity is not hearts and minds but the dictator. What's missing is the people. It's like we go to the baseball game and we tackle the pitcher. Suddenly on the scoreboard we're losing 55-0. Well, you morons were busy tackling the pitcher."
