Military Times calls for Rumsfeld to be fired

An editorial in the Military Times newspapers calls for Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld to be fired. It comes in response to President Bush stating earlier this week that he expects Rumsfeld to stay on for the duration of his term ending in January 2009. Here's an excerpt.

Rumsfeld has lost credibility with the uniformed leadership, with the troops, with Congress and with the public at large. His strategy has failed, and his ability to lead is compromised. And although the blame for our failures in Iraq rests with the secretary, it will be the troops who bear its brunt.

This is not about the midterm elections. Regardless of which party wins Nov. 7, the time has come, Mr. President, to face the hard bruising truth:

Donald Rumsfeld must go.

It will appear Monday in the Army Times, Navy Times, Air Force Times, and Marine Times. I suppose they're part of the liberal media conspiracy too.

Actually, they are.

"A few weeks ago, all of the troops out in the field were still reading retrospectives about how well they had done in the Persian Gulf. They don't read The Washington Post. They read such things called the Army Times, Navy Times, and the Air Force Times. Once a week, these are published, and they go all over the force. This is what the troops read."
-Colin Powell
