ABSTRACT
The article points out that in the Iraq War, the U.S. government and military organizations need somebody like Thomas Paine to encourage them in their endeavors despite heavy criticism. The situation is likened to the situation of George Washington after losing every battle in New York. Many wanted to replace Washington as head of the army, but it was Thomas Paine's treatise which helped galvanize the first turning point in the war for independence.
