Well I understand your point, but he did state his personal opinion. His opinion could be that the war in Iraq is wrong, but his official position would be much different. If Mullen met with the Joint chiefs, and layed out a military position on this issue then that would be official. His personal opinion is just that, a personal opinion and does not reflect the Military or his official position. I hope I made my position clear.
