George Will Debates NeoCons Over Afghanistan War

Even a blind squirrel finds a nut occasionally.

Conservative commentator George Will appeared on ABC’s “This Week” with George Stephanopoulos Sunday Morning and took on NeoConservatives over the country’s military strategy in Afghanistan.

Referencing a letter from Marine Commandant General Charles Krulak, Will cited military support for his position. Will said Sunday, “we are going to have a debate and there will be plenty of brass on my side.”

From Krulak’s ( former Commandant of the Marine Corps) letter (PDF): General Charles Kurlak’s Letter to George Will

“I am in total agreement with your assessment. Instead of a surge of 21,000 troops, [we] would need a surge of hundreds of thousands. Not only would our nation not support such a surge, but, most distressing, the military could not support such a surge.”
Last week, Will made the case for getting U.S. forces out of Afghanistan. Will has also called for a withdrawal of troops from Iraq.
