Frederick Kagan: Interviewed about his Iraq War Plan





President Bush, in a primetime speech Wednesday, admitted that he erred in having failed to send more troops to Iraq.

As part of a new war plan, Bush will be sending 21,500 additional troops to Iraq to stomp out the sectarian violence that has been ravaging the nation and threatening to send it into civil war.

However, a recent AP poll suggests that most Americans oppose such a move.

Such overwhelming opposition reflects increasing doubt that the U.S. was correct in having gone to war in the first place and that establishment of a secure democratic government is possible.

According to the poll, only 35 percent of the public believe it was right for the U.S. to go war-a complete reversal from two years ago when two-thirds of Americans thought it was the right decision.

Pat Robertson recently interviewed the American Enterprise Institute's Frederick W. Kagan, who helped develop the President's new plan. Watch the interview right here on CBNNews.com.
