Aussie top brass again calls for withdrawal from Afghanistan

Major General Alan Stretton, AO, CBE, Australian Army chief of staff during the Vietnam War, former Australian of the Year, former Deputy Director of the Joint Intelligence Organization and member of the National Intelligence Committee, has again called for Australia to withdraw from Afghanistan, calling Australia's longest war "unwinnable".

In August 2004 he also publicly criticized the Australian Government's policy of involvement with the 2003 Invasion of Iraq, in an open letter in which he stated: "The alleged connection between Saddam Hussein and al-Qa'ida is ludicrous."
