NBC News corproation had the “inside scoop” on America’s withdrawal of combat brigades. They may not have exactly helped cement the idea that the war is over but they did help the Pentagon sell the idea that the U.S. had achieved victory in Iraq.

For most of my military career, the United States followed the rule of law and resisted legal shortcuts that ran counter to our country’s long-standing principles. We didn’t beat or humiliate helpless prisoners. We didn’t lock up alleged criminals and throw away the keys. We didn’t let fear change who we are and what we believe. Then came Guantanamo. Political expediency replaced due process, and America started down a slippery slope of doing what is easy and politically popular rather than what is right.
