It's a shame that some Republican pundits are so blinkered that
they can't give fair credit to Republican Generals who are now
speaking out against the poor leadership of the Bush administration
in Iraq. For your readers' information, in "Going Wobbly"
(May 15), Michael Reagan failed to mention that General Eaton
built the Iraqi Security Forces from 2003-2004, and General Batiste
commanded 22,000 combat troops in Iraq from 2004-2005. Like
General Petraeus, they've been on the ground in Iraq, and they
are all too aware that the administration has not given them
everything they needed to succeed.
