Leavenworth, KS. – A general who once protested Iraq war handling during the Bush administration says the jury is still out on Obama team foreign policy. Retired Marine Corps General Anthony Zinni made his points at Fort Leavenworth to an audience including officers from other countries. He said the premise is good, to internationalize strategy in Afghanistan and Pakistan. Zinni chided NATO allies, countries from which many of the students hailed and the general knew it. KCUR's Dan Verbeck was there.
