Default Re: CIA Now Says Iraq is a Terrorist Training Ground!!

MEETING WITH INSURGENTS OR NOT???


THIS: 2 hours, 18 minutes ago

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. forces have not held talks with insurgent leaders involved in attacks in Iraq but may do so soon, the U.S. commander in Iraq said on Monday in remarks that appeared to differ from those of Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld.

On Sunday Rumsfeld said meetings between U.S. representatives and insurgent commanders "go on all the time."

Asked by a reporter whether U.S. forces had met with "known leaders of the insurgency who have been involved directly in attacks against U.S. and Iraqi forces," Army Gen. George Casey said: "Not yet. Not, to the best of my knowledge, yet."

Washington -- The U.S. military in Iraq has been holding face-to-face meetings with some Iraqi leaders of the insurgency there, Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld and the U.S. commander in charge of Iraq confirmed Sunday.

The talks are part of the military's revised campaign to drive a wedge between the Iraqi and foreign insurgents, according to U.S. commanders. Pentagon officials have acknowledged the new strategy but have not, until now, spoken openly about efforts to make contact with some Iraqi insurgent leaders.

---------------------------------------------

It appears that the US Commander in Iraq and the Secretary of Defense do not communicate with one another.

Have there been or have there not been talks held with insurgents?

If our military doesn't know what the HELL is going on, well, then, people, we need to demand that they either do their jobs or RESIGN!!!

In Peace,
