Lt. Gen. Odierno, Spinmeister
In defending the extensive contracting of mercenaries in Iraq, Odierno said awful things, which, when parsed, just show that an unpopular war doesn't result in much recruiting, and therefore we need to pay for extra killers, and pay for people to do basic services, freeing up our troops to do some of the more military tasks we have. Yes, Clinton used mercs in the Balkans, although not nearly so many.
I'd love to start an anti-mercenary lobby on K Street, with big signage that said "Mercenary Killers Network" with lots of skulls, guns and black.
