Politics: Franks takes the heat for "Mission Accomplished"

Retired general Tommy Franks says Bush declared "Mission Accomplished" because he "asked him to."

"I wanted to get the phase of military operation over as quickly as I could, because a lot of countries on this planet had said as soon as that major stuff is over, we'll come in and help with all of the peacekeeping," Franks said.
I dunno if I buy that, but I guess when you're retired, it doesn't matter much if extreme political arrogance is your fault.
