Playing Buck Roulette

Chuck Hagel blames the nearly continuous string of bad consequences in Iraq on “the arrogance and incompetency of the civilian leadership at the Pentagon.” [link via]

But do those descriptions really stop being accurate at the Pentagon, or do they work as one goes up a few notches?

Hagel adds: “It’s always the uniformed military that has to bear the brunt of bad decisions. They do the dying and the suffering … The buck does stop somewhere.”

Concentration is important!
