I'm General the Eighth I am

Resign, Rummy, Resign. But he won't. And Lieboy won't fire him either. He's doing too good a job. He got the oil. He lies really well. He never answers questions . He's building the biggest U.S. Embassy in the world in Baghdad. He's the perfect Neocon. Nothing stands in his way. No matter how many generals come along and tell him he should resign, he ignores them. He says there are thousands more generals who support him. Another lie. There are hundreds of generals in the military, not thousands. He takes their silence as compliance. But they saw what happened to Shinseki. They're not blind. Rumsfeld's a vindictive man.
General #8
Retired Lieutenant General Paul Van Riper, a three-star general who retired in 1997, told Fox News that Mr Rumsfeld was not capable of leading the Pentagon effort in Iraq. He is the eighth former general to call for Mr Rumsfeld to step down.

Is he the eighth, ninth or tenth?

Gen. Eric Shinseki, former Army Chief of Staff
Marine Gen. Anthony Zinni, former CENTCOM commander
Lt.Gen. Greg Newbold, Director of Operations for the Joint Chiefs of Staff
Maj.Gen. John Batiste, former 1st Infantry Division commander
Maj.Gen. Charles Swannack, former commander of the 82d Airborne Division in Iraq
Maj.Gen. John Riggs who, after 39 years in the Army, retired from the Pentagon in 2005
Maj.Gen. Paul Eaton, who oversaw training of Iraqi troops from 2003-2004
Gen. Wesley Clark, former NATO Supreme Allied Commander.
If one counts General Karpinski who took the fall for Abu Ghraib, that makes ten.

I know [Deputy Secretary of Defense] Paul Wolfowitz was angry and upset. Were you aware that that kind of dynamic was happening?

I was not aware of things that Richard Perle had been doing and that Mr. Wolfowitz had been doing at the time. But sitting now here in 2004, I take great umbrage at what they were doing. Here's a group with no military experience. And then you add on top of that, you actively avoided service in period of war, Vietnam, as the gentlemen are alleged to do? I take great umbrage that they would have anything to say about the military policies of this country.
