5. Putting in a Navy Admiral at Central Command?
Edited on Fri Jan-05-07 08:02 AM by fasttense
I've worked for some very good Admirals but I wouldn't want them directing a ground war. I think bush wants someone who doesn't know much about ground wars so they will take their direction from him and not think for themselves.

But my experience with Admirals has been that they tend to be pretty independent thinkers. We'll see.
