Very impressive chap Zinni. He's a credit to the USMC.


Actually, Zinni's successor Franks also spent a lot of time getting up to speed on the various countries in CENTCOM's area. And the current general Abizaid speaks Arabic. Also, Schwarzkopf worked on understanding the countries involved.

My point is that we have had good leaders there for some time, although there have been genuine differences in opinion among them about how to deal with CENTCOM's different problems.


Tactics are needed in execution of every step.
