Clinton rebuffs general's warning on Afghanistan

That would be the general Obama hand picked.

"Clinton expressed "respect" for McChrystal's assessment that the United States would likely lose the war in Afghanistan within a year without more US forces.

"But I can only tell you there are other assessments from very expert military analysts who have worked in counter-insurgencies that are the exact opposite," she said."

Notice she doesn't name these so called "very expert military analysts".

Here, however, are a few named "very expert military analysts" whose assessments "are the exact opposite" of Clintons.

"The Washington Post reported Tuesday that Admiral Mike Mullen, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and General David Petraeus, the head of the US Central Command, had endorsed McChrystal's assessment."

The Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, the head of the US Central Command and the general in overall charge of Afghanistan, in short the top US military experts if this field, all agree but Clinton knows better.

This from the woman who lied about flying into Bosnia under sniper fire.
