Mattis, Dunford, McMasters and Tillerson are still pushing the same failed concept in Afghanistan!

The White House has even offered its own, outside-the-box thinking.
Officials said Trump’s chief strategist, Steve Bannon, and his son-in-law and adviser, Jared Kushner, have been pushing a plan to have contractors fight the war in Afghanistan instead of U.S. troops. Blackwater Worldwide founder Erik Prince, the brother of Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, was approached by Trump’s top advisers to develop proposals to gradually swap out U.S. troops and put military contractors in their place, a mil itary official said.
The military has frowned on such proposals. It believes boosting troop levels will accelerate progress in training Afghan troops and its air force, and help counterterrorism teams pursue targets even more aggressively. They point to improvements among Afghan forces and in anti-corruption efforts. Military leaders — including McMaster, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis and Gen. Joseph Dunford, the Joint Chiefs of Staff chairman, are all said to be on the same page, as is Secretary of State Rex Tillerson."
Story here. 

How fucking stupid are these guys?  McMasters, Dunford, and Mattis are suppose to be tactical and strategic geniuses and they really think that following the EXACT SAME game plan that hasn't worked for over a decade is the solution to the problem?

To paraphrase the old cliche...a sign of INSANITY is to do the samething over and over and expect different results!
