AND SO IT BEGINS!

“Donald Rumsfeld’s resignation is a step in the right direction,” said Anthony D. Romero, ACLU Executive Director. “Rumsfeld is responsible for the torture and abuse of detainees in U. S. military custody and must be held accountable for the failures that occurred on his watch. He has placed the blame on junior military members and has been nothing but derelict in his duty. Congress must initiate an immediate and exhaustive investigation into his six-year-long record of unlawful activity, violations of the rule of law and complicity in the executive branch abuse of power.”

The new Congress hasn't even taken the oath of office (even if they don't MEAN IT - which many of them do not) and here we go!

Some Rumsfeld Moments:

The Secretary of Defense rushes BACK INTO the burning Pentagon in an effort to save some of his people.

The Secretary of Defense staging (and WINNING) 2 WARS!

The Secretary of Defense standing up to (and putting down when warranted) both the grasping, rude and dimwitted Defense Department Press Corps and some members of the U.S. Congress.

WE LOVE YOU RUMMY, AND WE WISH YOU WELL! Unfortunately, your like will not be seen soon again! Our nation is richer for having had you on the job for the past six years, and poorer for losing you now while danger still abounds - from without (the terrorists) and from within (the already power-drunk Democrats)!

very sad indeed...

did some of these conservatives really consider their efforts, and the eventual ramifications?

There are a lot of people in this country who do not consider consequences, unintended or otherwise.

Thank you for writing this piece on Secretary Rumsfeld. I agree with you wholeheartedly. Very well said.
