Lying to Ourselves: Dishonesty in the Army Profession

Recommended Posts

its much worse than that report suggests.

Soldiers returning from Iraq and Afghanistan often tell those of us who never went there

how they, their unit and the US Army won the battles they were involved in,

or would have won, if only this or that.

To a disinterested observer,

I think its clear we lost both wars.

But soldiers in the field get fed so much baloney by their Chain of Command that they eventually come to believe it.

The problem is with the Generals.

The last honest one was canned in 2002 for saying the invasion of Iraq would not be a cake walk.

The other Generals saw what happened to him, and adjusted accordingly.
