Letter: Shinseki blame misplaced
The media is now after Gen. Eric Shinseki’s head. As I recall, he was the only general who was opposed to going into Iraq. I remember seeing him on C-SPAN taking questions from some government committee on the subject. Soon after, he retired and was no longer heard from.
Of course he cares about our soldiers, the veterans. That is precisely why he didn’t want them going to Iraq. He knew what the end result would be.
The politicians are a disgrace to me. They can’t even come together for the good of soldiers who carry out their orders, no questions asked, because that is their duty. Forget about the general’s head and take a look at your own. After all, it’s the politicians who get us into war, and they should be doing their utmost to solve the veterans’ health care problems, not adding to them.
