Powell criticises Iraq troop levels and rift with Europe

Telegraph Publication

Excerpt: Colin Powell, the former US secretary of state, has for the first time publicly criticised troops levels in Iraq and spoken of the rifts between himself and Donald Rumsfeld, the defence secretary, that undermined his role as architect of American foreign policy.

.........Admitting that Mr Rumsfeld's controversial plan to fight the war with limited troop numbers had been an outstanding success, Mr Powell said the "nation building" that followed had been deeply flawed.

There had been "enough troops for war but not for peace, for establishing order. My own preference would have been for more forces after the conflict."

Interesting post. And a fair comment from Colin Powell.

But ... the reason they call it hindsight is that it looks at decisions already made. That's why its always 20/20

BTW ... cool blog and GREAT template!
