Posted By Blackfive • [March 08, 2009]

Greyhawk wonders how you can (1) take a Brigade sceduled to go to Iraq and schedule it to go to Afghanistan instead, then (2) make headlines for drawing down Iraq and building up Afghanistan, then (3) pull off substituting another Brigade into the Iraq rotation for the one you diverted without anyone in the media pointing out that your drawdown is a scam on the American public?
