The Raw Story | Gen. McCaffrey: Congress should use Constitutional powers to protect the military
MSNBCs Willie Geist interviewed military analyst General ret. Barry McCaffrey on Tuesday about the current state of the war in Iraq. McCaffrey told Geist that Congress needs to take action to prevent the US military from breaking under the strain of the next set of troop rotations, due in April 2008.
“We simply cannot sustain this rate of deployment,” he said. “I think the Congress, under Article I of the Constitution has to get involved and try to ensure that we don’t unravel the US ground combat capability.”
