Bush vs The Brass

The Washington Post has an important piece this morning. Apparently the White House is pushing the Pentagon for a surge strategy, but the Joint Chiefs are pushing back just as hard; they are reported to be opposing the idea unanimously. It's important that they're standing up to the White House, but it's also important that the story got leaked to the Post.

If the Joint Chiefs keep this up, the political risks to the administration of a surge strategy are magnified exponentially. It probably wouldn't happen.
