The Pentagon recently announced their plans to launch a joint US/Iraqi military operation to retake Mosul in April. Then they abruptly cancelled it, because things just aren’t quite ready. It doesn’t get much more embarrassing than that.

LadyHW No, that can't be it, because then they wouldn't have walked it back only two weeks after they announced it and even before the Tikrit offensive began. Remember the Mosul offensive was supposedly planned for April or May.
Queation: Could the announcement on Mosul have been a diversion while Iran and Iraq was setting up the attack on Tikrit?
American Leadership is critical. This peice from Lang shouldn't be as spot on as is. Great work Lang... Can you type?.... In the unbelievable event that we get a leader?...LOL
Yeah, OPSEC is kind of a non-starter with this administration, isn’t it? <sigh> The idea that they might do something without mentioning it to the world is kind of beyond these people.
Weekends True, but they shouldn’t have been announcing anything anyway. Giving the enemy a heads up is kind of ridiculous.
