In an Armed Forces Journal article earlier this month, Army Lt. Col. Daniel L. Davis, who returned late last year from his second deployment to Afghanistan, argued that military leaders were not telling the truth about what was really happening in the war there. “How many more men must die in support of a mission that is not succeeding?“ he asked. While a top U.S. Army general rejected Davis’s pessimistic view, Rep. Frank Wolf (R-VA) is urging Defense Secretary Leon Panetta to open an investigation into Davis’s claims. “In a Feb. 10 letter,” Defense News reported on Friday, “Wolf wrote he is deeply troubled by the conclusions reached by Lt. Col. Daniel Davis and asks Panetta to immediately create an Afghanistan/Pakistan Study Group.”
