General John Keane Supports Obama's Iraq War Timetable
In 2006 General Keane and military historian Frederick Kagan helped develop a new approach to the Iraq war that would become known as The Surge.

General Keane gives an insider's account of this pivotal time in the Iraq war and of the resistance encountered within the military to that dramatic change in strategy. Here Keane supports Obama's timetable for Iraq.
