Republican leader blames generals in Iraq for missteps

House Majority Leader John Boehner (R-OH) blamed US generals in Iraq for failures in the war in an interview with Wolf Blitzer. When questioned on whether or not Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld deserves the blame for how the Iraq war has been conducted, Boehner brushed it off and pointed the blame at the generals:

BOEHNER: Wolf, I understand that, but let's not blame what's happening in Iraq on Rumsfeld.

BLITZER: But he's in charge of the military.

BOEHNER: But the fact is, the generals on the ground are in charge, and he works closely with them and the president.

Yet another reason why Boehner and other Republicans in the House need to be removed from power on Election Day next Tuesday.
