Top U.S. Military Officer says we must leave Baghdad, Now!

REPORT: Top U.S. Military Officer Recommends We Remove All Troops From Baghdad
President Bush has consistently said that his strategy in Iraq is dictated by military officials on the ground. Last night on the NewsHour with Jim Lehrer, columnist Mark Shields revealed that one of the highest ranking men in the military has recommended removing all U.S. troops from Baghdad. Heres the key excerpt:

MARK SHIELDS: The highest ranking or certainly one of the highest ranking men in the United States military today has recommended that we remove all troops from Baghdad, all American troops from BaghdadAll of the troops out of Baghdad, secure the road to the airport, secure the oil fields and the borders, and say that the pacification and the maintaining of order in Baghdad is the responsibility of the Iraqis. That is the recommendation of probably one of the most probably the most respected man in uniform today.
