What John Lesch learned:
After talking to U.S. troops, Iraqi leaders, contractors from Minnesota and U.S. Embassy personnel, Lesch said he has grave doubts about a continued U.S. presence in Iraq.To read Lesch's blog from Iraq go to www.john lesch.blogspot.com.
"Far more policy decisions being made in Iraq are not being made by the American people, but an elite few in the military, in Washington and, even worse, those on the corporate boards of Halliburton and other contractors.
"Many contractors and troops I talked are really questioning why they're putting their life on the line. Their hands are in their hair."
