I have this one forever etched in my mind.
The General in front of one fo those maps discussing the latest carpet bombing of the day. He's interrupted by a reporter:
"General, what do you think of Saddam Hussein's military tactics and strategy?"
The General: As far as Saddam Hussein being a great military strategist, he is neither a strategist, nor is he schooled in the operational art, nor is he a tactician, nor is he a general, nor is he a soldier.
Other than that he's a great military man-I want you to know that."
I was sitting in my living room and I thought my son was going to need to revive me after laughing so hard.
