also stated that critics should not "blame what's happening in Iraq on [Defense Secretary Donald] Rumsfeld" because "the generals on the ground are in charge," House Majority Leader John Boehner (R-OH)

Yes Sir!!!!!!!!!!

Bush and Rummy does not have anything to do with any military decisions made about what has happened or happening in Iraq or will happen in the further!!!!!!!!!.

Why after Busy/Rummy named the replacement of the Highest Ranking Military General prior to the invasion, threw his plan in the trash, they invaded Iraq Runny WAY FOLLOWING RUMMY'S PLAN to invade and secure Iraq with his few HAND PICKED GENERALS IN CHARGE to insure Rummy's Plan was carried out.

Yeah the Iraq Mess is the Generals Fault they one hand pick by Rummy for following Rummy's Plan and the other General for following orders from Rummy down the chain of command.

Of course Bush and Rummy has NO RESPONSIBLE for the mess in Iraq or Military decisions made---they just were cursed with BAD GENERALS WITH VERY LIMITED MILITARY COMMAND ABILITY!

Soon Republicans Congress People will be blaming the Iraq mess on a few low ranking Enlist people ----like the Iraq Prison Mess was--and all will be well!!!!

Unfortunately most of the CNN reporters with the exception of Anderson Cooper and the two women in Iraq have demonstrated who butters their toast. Hopefully the new Democratic majority will enact laws changing the recent deregulation of the FCC and the FCC staff's ability to enact their own laws which restrict our access to information and protect local broadcasting. The press needs to be held accountable for their failure to demonstrate even a minimum amount of ethical courage where it concerns the dismantling of the FCC. We must not forget that successful mainstream journalists are millionaires and are as disconnected from the realities of the average American voter as the members of the Senate are.
