Rummy's Doing A Heckuva Job!

(audio) "Rummy, he's tough, he's a ruthless little bastard."-Richard Stonewall Nixon, March 9, 1971.
Bush Defends Rumsfeld just like we knew he would. He took precious time out again from his busy recreational schedule to issue his support. Cheney and Rumsfeld must have decided it was a good time...a Friday, the weekend will be spin time to make traitors out of the generals who put the lives of the troops ahead of the lies of the crooks.
"I have seen first-hand how Don relies upon our military commanders in the field and at the Pentagon to make decisions about how best to complete these missions," Bush said in a written statement, issued while the president was spending the Easter weekend at Camp David, the presidential retreat in Maryland's Catoctin Mountains.
"Secretary Rumsfeld's energetic and steady leadership is exactly what is needed at this critical period," Bush said. "He has my full support and deepest appreciation." In an interview aired today on Al-Arabiya television, Rumsfeld said he intends to serve the president at his pleasure.

Lieboy loves Rummy. Rummy is tough. Rummy won't rat him out. Rummy refuses to answer questions. Lieboy NEEDS him. He won't be fired and he won't be resigning before they've bombed Iran. There's money to be made and oil to steal.
Several retired military commanders, including Maj. Gen. John Batiste, who turned down a promotion to lieutenant general in favor of leaving the Army, have recently made statements urging Rumsfeld's ouster. They argue that the planning for the war in Iraq was not sufficient and that Rumsfeld's management style has too often given shortshrift attention to the views of uniformed officers.
Earlier today, Batiste said he did not know of any coordinated effort by military figures to get Rumsfeld fired, calling the recent series of critical statements "absolutely coincidental." "I have not talked to the other generals," Batiste, interviewed from Rochester, N.Y., said on NBC"s "Today" show.

I had the misfortune to witness Katie Whoreick's badgering "interview" with Batiste this morning; it was disgusting. Her questions were nastily delivered in an attempt to discredit the general and make it sound like a plot of some sort to undermine this whole nation. Couric is so partisan it's painful to think of her reading the news on CBS. She's a tool and too old to do the "perky" schtick. She wondered why the general hadn't come forward sooner if he had such reservations, he had to point out the fate of General Shinseki who had he nerve to contradict Rummy in public. Sayonara Shinseki. Generals calling for Rumsfeld's resignation, Swannake and Riggs, Marine Lieutenant General Gregory Newbold, who held the key post of director of operations on the staff of the Joint Chiefs of Staff from 2000 to 2002, retired Army Major General Paul Eaton, who served in Iraq, and retired Marine General Anthony Zinni, former U.S. Central Command chief and a longtime critic of Rumsfeld and the administration's handling of the Iraq war. The White House has dismissed the criticism and rebuffed the calls for Rumsfeld's resignation.

But Rummy says there are THOUSANDS of Generals who aren't complaining, heck it would just be a merry-go-round if he had to listen to the men and women in uniform. He doesn't count Karpinski, I suppose.

Bush Defends Rumsfeld
in 2004...it's a habit, like booze and cocaine, more of an addiction.
The Unknown As we know, there are known knowns. There are things we know we know. We also know there are known unknowns. That is to say we know there are some things we do not know. But there are also unknown unknowns, the ones we don't know we don't know.
—Feb. 12, 2002, Department of Defense news briefing

Rumsfeld ordered torture, we've known this all along. He brought in torturer General Geoffrey Miller from Guantanamo to train troops at Abu Ghraib in techniques to treat prisoners like dogs, using dogs to terrorize them. That's Rummy's kind of General, a fellow Nazi.
Rumsfeld is clearly only interested in our freedoms. I wonder how long the play, "Stuff Happens" will last, or if Herr Rumsfeldt would dare to see it?
