Ryan Crocker's incomprehensible Tet news conference

It's weird what you can't find on YouTube, like General Westmoreland's news conference on Tet, saying all was well.

Ryan Crocker says the Kabul high rise stand-off wasn't Tet.

"Mr. Crocker said the attack made for a hard day for him and his staff but did little to derail overall security in the capital. "A half a dozen RPG rounds from 800 meters away—that isn't Tet; that's harassment," he said, referring to the Tet Offensive in the Vietnam War."

According to Westmoreland, Tet wasn't Tet either: it was a comprehensive military victory for The Good Guys.
