Major General (ret.) Paul D. Eaton is the second former commander on the ground in Iraq to declare that the President did not listen to his commanders, and is still not listening, when it comes to the war in Iraq. This comes on the heels of an ad that shook the political world last week, when former Iraq commanding general, Major General (ret.) John Batiste became the first former commander from the war to take to the paid airwaves to say the same thing.
The Eaton ad will run in the states and districts of Senators Susan Collins and John Warner and Representatives Mary Bono, Mike Castle, Phil English, Jo Ann Emerson, Tim Johnson (IL), Heather Wilson, beginning today, through the end of the week. Events are planned in Albuquerque, Richmond, Tidewater, Champaign-Urbana, Palm Springs and Wilmington to promote the ad.
