Hillary asking DOD to give our enemies a roadmap

I found an interesting article here at NewsMax where Hillary Clinton is pressing Robert Gates and the DOD to layout how the U.S. plans to get out of Iraq.

Under Secretary of Defense Eric Edelman gave this biting reply, recently obtained by the AP:

“Premature and public discussion of the withdrawal of U.S. forces from Iraq reinforces enemy propaganda that the United States will abandon its allies in Iraq, much as we are perceived to have done in Vietnam, Lebanon and Somalia,” Edelman wrote.

Edelman doesn’t deny that there are plans in the works, saying,

“We are always evaluating and planning for possible contingencies. As you know, it is long-standing departmental policy that operational plans, including contingency plans, are not released outside of the department.”

He just doesn’t want to give our enemy the blueprint, like the presidential hopeful catering to the left-wing nuts of her party.

Well, duh!  And, this woman is a member of our Senate Armed Services Committee?  Obviously, she didn’t cut the mustard for the “Intelligence” Committee.  Geez!
