The retired Marine Corps general the White House asked to serve as czar of the War on Terror wouldn’t take the job – he didn’t think success was possible without a strategy. Money quote:

What I found in discussions with current and former members of this administration is that there is no agreed-upon strategic view of the Iraq problem or the region.


Success draws talent, so it leads to more success. And failure scares it away, and leads to more failure.
