Awakened Moral-Coma Patient of the Day

JUNE 13, 2007
Retired Army Lieutenant General Ricardo Sanchez.  Famous for his command of US forces in Iraq as well as innovations in prisoner treatment at Abu Ghraib and elsewhere.  This week he got to work his magic on Bush.
In an interview with Agence France Press he said he thought that the US will not achieve “victory” in Iraq. “I think that if we do the right things politically and economically with the right Iraqi leadership we could still salvage a stalemate, if you will.  Not a stalemate but at least stave off defeat.”  He said that the situation in Iraq was bleak and was due to “the abysmal performance in the early stages and the transition of sovereignty.”   He also recently said,  “I am absolutely convinced that America has a crisis of leadership at this time.”
