Verbal fragging

You know the war's going badly when the junior officer corps takes out the long knives for the generals.

What else to conclude after the news that a respected colonel has conducted a verbal fragging of the generals who've run the Iraq war:

An active-duty Army officer is publishing a blistering attack on U.S. generals, saying they have botched the war in Iraq and misled Congress about the situation there.

"America's generals have repeated the mistakes of Vietnam in Iraq," charges Lt. Col. Paul Yingling, an Iraq veteran who is deputy commander of the 3rd Armored Cavalry Regiment. "The intellectual and moral failures … constitute a crisis in American generals."

The article itself warns the United States could very well lose in Iraq.
