    There's no other reason for someone to break ranks and mention to the most vocal dem right now that it will take 25 years to train Iraqi troops.

    Murtha's a Marine but he wasn't a general.  He didn't come up with this plan himself, i.e., he has no real way of knowing 6 months is viable (and presumably from his persona would not say so if he were not pretty sure) except that someone in the know, in the military, told him it's possible.

    He isn't hiding the fact that the info is coming from them.

    And what are Chimp and Darth gonna say?  That the military is wrong?

      Well, duh. Of course. Haven't you been paying attention? Does the name Shinseki mean anything to you?
