Rummy should NOT Resign!

Stop picking on Donald Rumsfeld for the Iraq War mistakes...

Everyone and their mother is picking on Donald Rumsfeld and asking for his head on a platter. From top dog retired Army Generals, to Senators, to candidates for the Senate, to state Governors, to Congressmen, and others (The Rummy Mutiny)... everyone wants Rummy's ass out of the Pentagon for the Iraq war screw-up.

But, says Greg Palast, all of the finger pointing in Rummy's direction is wrong! Here's why:
It wasn't Secretary of Defense Rumsfeld who stood up in front of the UN and identified two mobile latrines as biological weapons labs, was it, General Powell?

It wasn't Secretary of Defense Rumsfeld who told us our next warning from Saddam could be a mushroom cloud, was it Condoleeza?

It wasn't Secretary of Defense Rumsfeld who declared that Al Qaeda and Saddam were going steady, was it, Mr. Cheney?

Yes, Rumsfeld is a swaggering bag of mendacious arrogance, a duplicitous chicken-hawk, yellow-bellied bully-boy and Tinker-Toy Napoleon -- but he didn't appoint himself Secretary of Defense.

Wait it gets better!

Nothing moves or breathes or spits in the Bush Administration without Darth Cheney's growl of approval. And ultimately, it's the Commander-in-Chief who's chiefly in command.

Even the generals' complaint -- that Rumsfeld didn't give them enough troops -- was ultimately a decision of the cowboy from Crawford.

President Bush is one lucky fella. I can imagine him today on the intercom with Cheney: "Well, pardner, looks like the game's up." And Cheney replies, "Hey, just hang the Rumsfeld dummy out the window until he's taken all their ammo."

When Bush and Cheney read about the call for Rumsfeld's resignation today, I can just hear George saying to Dick, "Mission Accomplished."

Generals, let me give you a bit of advice about choosing a target: It's the President, stupid.

Amen to that!

Read the full article by Grep Palast and you'll witness an untold story of the lost opportunity to end the occupation two years ago! It'll piss you off even more!!!

(By the way, Read this OpEd News story for the best break-down of the Bush Crime Family I've ever read!)
