Army chief calls for Iraq withdrawal

The BBC is reporting tonight:

The head of the British Army has said the presence of UK armed forces in Iraq "exacerbates the security problems".

In an interview in the Daily Mail, Sir Richard Dannatt, Chief of the General Staff, is quoted as saying the British should "get out some time soon".

Doug Henderson has been on the news saying that this raises important constitutional questions. No doubt it does.

But isn't the important point that what Sir Richard is saying is obviously true?
