Wow, substance!
Good post man. I will say this:
If Bush is going to fire Rumsfeld, then he should make it abundantly clear to everyone that it's because of the torture scandals and not the insurections. Wouldn't want to give Sadr et al any unnecessary PR victories however pyric.


"Wow, substance!"

Don't get accustomed to it. Actually, I was going to hide behind Doctor D and quit after the first paragraph, but even I was appalled by my gutlessness.

It would be great if Rumsfeld stepped down after some good news from Iraq. And there might be some, if we can believe this:

NAJAF, MAY 6: US troops attacked Shi’ite militia forces around Najaf on Thursday, seizing the local governor’s offices and killing 41 fighters, an official in the US occupation authority said. In what seemed a broad move against insurgents across southern Iraq, US tanks moved unopposed into the centre of Karbala, destroying offices used by the Mahdi Army militia of Shi’ite cleric Moqtada Al-Sadr.

Patrick R. Sullivan

John McCain ought to take the opportunity to say something like, "What a bunch of wusses these Iraqi illegal combatants are. I'd have traded places with them any day from my cell in the Hanoi Hilton. Torture? Ha! And I was a lawful POW covered by the Geneva Convention"

As for Bush's "apology"; big mistake. He should have said that it is a difficult job eliciting information from the kind of people we've got to work over...er, with. Some of them might have been connected to the recent attempt to kill 80,000 Jordanians. Say, Abdullah, how did your secret police manage to find out about it, anyway?"
