You can believe that the top Generals in Iraq on still working on PLAN B if you want, but this Surge in troops is actually Plan J or K. Operation Light Foot Print (keep the very minimal amount of soldiers over there as possible) didn't quite work well. Rice basically forced Rummy to quit because when she became secretary of state, she started this "Clear, Hold, Rebuild" thing that Rummy was totally against and the Republican party began to unwind with in themselves. That's why Bush kept changing Generals, because he hand picked the ones that believed in the same plans as he. If they didn't go with Bush, they were removed.
