Micromanaging a Clusterscrew

In the Army, I had a much more vulgar term for what is going on in our Department of Defense right now, specifically in Iraq and our military hospitals.

Condi is out now telling Dems to not micromanage Iraq.

"Then you're going to have the worst of micromanagement of military affairs. And
it's always served us badly in the past," she said.
I have said this once, and I'll say it again. In order to micromanage something, doesn't it have to be managed beforehand? Iraq has not been managed well since the quagmire began 4 years ago. At some point, we need accountability. We need people to step up to the plate, take charge, and change the direction of our situation in Iraq.

Will greater Government oversight over Walter Reed Army hospital and VA facilities be met with similar rhetoric?

Clearly we would not have micromanagement issues if the majority of American's beleived the Iraq strategy and our soldiers and Veterans were being supported.

It's easy to cite micromanagement issues when the current political powers that be want to continue a "strategy" of keeping our collective heads in the sand, kind of like that South Park episode.
