New Worries for Pentagon Brass

Back in April 2003, the Pentagon predicted the Iraq occupation would be over this month -- December, 2004. Like so many other generals in so many other wars -- the brass once again wrongly predicted "we'd be home by Christmas." Instead, troop levels are rising to records and insurgent attacks are worsening and becoming more effective. It's another sign the attackers are more than mere terrorists. Even the President says that. That precision has the brass worried -- and more hesitant about predictions. (MSNBC)
