Learning from Mistakes in Iraq?

Gene Jones,  president of Florida Veterans for Common Sense,  is skeptical.

Americans rejoice that our troops are coming home from Iraq now that President Obama has declared the war has concluded. In a recent speech at Fort Bragg, N.C., he declared that casing our flag in Baghdad marked a historic achievement and a success as our troops leave with their heads held high.”

While most Americans agree that overthrowing Saddam Hussein is an achievement worth celebrating, many Iraqis beg to differ. The president noted in the Fort Bragg speech that America has paid a high cost in blood and treasure to overthrow Saddam using military force, but he didn’t say one word about the cost to the Iraqis.
