I totally agree that both Capitol Hill and the White House is to blame. I am both a Vietnam Era and Desert Storm Era veteran looking at things from the inside. In both wars, Generals Westmorland (Vietnam) and Schwartzkopf (Desert Storm) were not allowed to do their jobs fully; by having limits put on them by Congress. They also could look at the precedent of General MacArthur (a WW2 hero) who was stripped of him command by President Truman because MacArthur wanted to WIN the Korean War and Truman didn't.
