    Major General John Batiste, (USA),  a promising officer, "retired" as commander of the 1st Infantry Division, after all avenues for career advancement were blocked following his behind-closed-doors criticism of the U.S. strategy in the 'war on terror' (or lackthereof).  Consequently, he began openly criticizing the Bush Administration.

    "...we went to war with a flawed plan that didn't account for the hard work to build the peace after we took down the regime. We also served under a secretary of defense who didn't understand leadership, who was abusive, who was arrogant, and who didn't build a strong team."

    Formerly, a voice of objective reason in the partisan din of the U.S. National Security community.
