Lt Gen McInerney weighs in on Afghanistan

July 1, 2010

Retired Air Force Lt. Gen. Thomas G. McInerney contributed an opinion article to Fox News entitled "Everyone Must Go, If We Want to Win in Afghanistan." He poses a number of questions, notes that the Taliban (not the U.S.) is the number one killer of civilians in Afghanistan and urges changes in the Rules of Engagement so that airpower can be used effectively and preserve the lives of American forces on the ground.

McInerney, a member of the Air Force Association, flew 407 combat missions in Vietnam and served as Assistant Vice Chief of Staff of the Air Force. Read more of his Air Force bio.
