Going through the official government narratives of conflict, there’s a lot of learn, even knowing that you’re dealing with a certain percentage of deliberate obfuscation and outright falsehoods. It’s important to discuss what the war planners of a given conflict knew, at what point they knew it, and how they acted on that information. A new Army report with heavy criticism over operations during Operation Iraqi Freedom will be released soon and while I expect to get irate while reading it, I also expect to learn a lot that I didn’t already know. We’ll do a much longer episode on the full report when it’s released. Enjoy!
2:00 – Syrian civil war update and America’s involvement
10:21 – Brain injuries from a roadside bomb
18:38 – Irresponsible general calls for war with China in 15 years
29:41 – Patron question on posse comitatus and habeas corpus
34:44 – New report critical of Army operations during the Iraq war
