Memo

The Blunted Spear: General Casey, Iraq and American Security


Author: Matt Bennett and Jon Cowan
In The National Security Program

Abstract

A memo in response to Army Chief of Staff George Casey’s testimony before the House Armed Services Committee.

Description

This memo emphasizes why the US must get out of Iraq as soon as possible. In his statement to the House Armed Services Committee, Army Chief of Staff George Casey made it clear that the fiasco in Iraq has blunted the tip of the spear. The Army is badly damaged; it has been crippled by Iraq and would be unable to respond effectively – or at all – to crises elsewhere in the world. Here we stress the fundamental reason to remove our military presence in Iraq – to re-sharpen the spear and fight terror more effectively.
