General Odom publicly warned against invading Iraq before the event, remained silent on the matter until April 2004 when he publicly called for the earliest withdrawal feasible, and in the fall of 2005 declared that it is likely to be "the greatest strategic disaster in American history." Since that time he has called for the United States to "cut and run" from Iraq in order to escape the strategic paralysis the war imposes on U.S. foreign policy in the region and globally.
