I know plenty of people who were defended by their boss just before human resources canned them. What else is he going say? he hired him, it would look bad for him to say antything else.

I agreee with all those generals. Rumsfeld should go and if Bush does not support that, than may be we need to get rid of him as well. BOth of this people butched this war and it was unnecessary. We are loosing all those soldiers in Iraq for nothing. I blame Israel lobby and the news networks for putting us into this war.

Yeah it took a lot of courage for him to go on Rush Limbaugh and Laura Ingrahms show. Im waiting for the security level to be raised this summer thru election day. Then after election day, they will go down again.

Fear is the only game they play. Unfortunately they have actually created a situation where their is more to fear. Their incompetence made them more honest!

A self fulfilling prophecy! I saw a clip of Rumsfeld using the same "henny penny" line in April 2003. Blaming the media for outbreaks of violence in Iraq. Denying that there was violence in the streets. Unbelievable!

Rumsfeld should go to jail just like Bush.

Both of them are war criminals.
