Col. David H. 'Hack' Hackworth

The late Col. Hackworth is gone but his website is still running.

This no-nonsense highly-decorated former soldier and veteran of WWI, the Korean War and the Vietnam War told it like he saw it in simple, concise prose.

He spent his career practising and preaching Rommel's maxim: "The best form of welfare for the troops is first-rate training."

Quote:

"Let's hope [Sam Adams's book War of Numbers: An Intelligence Memoir] will ... cause Congress to disband the CIA (because they [the CIA] did blow [the Vietnam War]) and transfer CIA functions to the Pentagon, State Department and the unemployment line."

- from The CIA: Bury This Evil Empire, 24 May 1994
