Early retirement for colonel?
[In reference to the Sept. 19 analysis "Is the drawdown too drawn out?"]: Didn’t President George W. Bush make almost the same statement with his banner on the aircraft carrier and get burned for it? Now it seems like Col. Timothy Reese (chief of the Baghdad Operations Command Advisory Team) might be looking for early retirement with basically the same statement ("It’s Time for the U.S. to Declare Victory and Go Home").
