So says our Secretary of State, while still defending the overall "strategy."

It's a strange case to make.  If your strategy is right, how can you make thousands of "tactical" mistakes?  Doesn't that imply that whatever your strategy was, your tactics for implementing the strategy didn't at all match the strategy itself?

And then, at how many "tactical" mistakes do we declare the "strategy" a failure?  5,000?  10,000?  1,000,000?

We are being governed by some silly people.
