Harry Reid is a genius when it comes to military tactics — just ask him.
The Las Vegas Review-Journal recently questioned the Harry Reid and Sharron Angle campaigns on various issues.
Here’s part of the Reid campaign’s explanation for why the Nevada Senator once said “the war is lost”:
On REID’S COMMENT THAT THE IRAQ ‘WAR IS LOST’
REID: At the time Sen. Reid made this comment, President Bush had been pursuing a failed, stay-the-course strategy that had cost thousands of American lives and billions of taxpayer dollars. Iraq appeared to be on the verge of a sectarian civil war. He was simply pointing out what our military leaders, including Gen. Petraeus, had been saying for months: that we could not win by staying the course; the war needed to be won diplomatically, politically, and economically. Sen. Reid and his colleagues were successful in forcing President Bush to finally abandon his failed approach and refocus on political reconciliation. This is what ultimately paved the way for the Iraqi government to take greater responsibility for Iraq’s future.
Sun Tzu himself couldn’t have thought up a more brilliant strategy. Congratulations, General Reid.
And all along we thought Reid was being pathetic and weak — I for one feel bad for ever criticizing him.
Here’s a flashback to when Harry “Patton” Reid rallied our brave men and women to victory with his trademark Churchillian leadership style:
There’s a big difference between “we can’t win unless…” and “we lost.” Harry Reid hopes nobody can tell the difference.
