At least that’s what claims the TV over and over again today.

How do they know? Well because SecDef Gates met with 15 of them in Iraq Thursday for breakfast.

“‘Sir I think we need to just keep doing what we’re doing,’ Spc. Jason T. Green, with the 101st Military Intelligence Brigade Combat Team of the 1st Infantry Division, told Gates. …

“‘I really think we need more troops here. With more presence on the ground, more troops might hold them off long enough to where we can get the Iraqi Army trained up.’ …

“‘More troops would help us integrate the Iraq Army into patrols more,’ said Pfc. Cassandra Wallace, from the 10th Mountain Division.”

Well, there you have it. Forget the Joint Chiefs of Staff, 15 hand-picked photo-op soldiers say the president agrees with them!
