White House seeks "czar" to oversee wars: report - Yahoo! News: 'The very fundamental issue is, they don't know where the hell they're going,' Sheehan told the Post.
Sheehan said he believes that Vice President
Dick Cheney and his hawkish allies remain more powerful within the administration than pragmatists looking for a way out of Iraq, the Post reported.
'So rather than go over there, develop an ulcer and eventually leave, I said, 'No, thanks,' ' Sheehan told the paper.
Retired Army Gen. Jack Keane and retired Air Force Gen. Joseph Ralston were also approached and said they were not interested in the position, the newspaper said, citing sources.
Ralston declined to comment while Keane confirmed he turned down the job, the Post said.
