General testimony 

Mixed media commentary on testimony by Gen. John Abizaid, head of U.S. Central Command, and Lt. Gen. Ricardo Sanchez, top U.S. military commander in Iraq, in the Senate Arms Services Committee today, as covered by NPR. The two top military commanders in Iraq didn't know about the abuse of prisoners in Iraq, didn't authorize it, and didn't know if the Pentagon authorized it. Pundits differed on whether this represents a failure of leadership, or the fog of war. What do you think?
