Me and the generals

People... should never question the dedication, the patriotism and the work ethic of Secretary Rumsfeld
Gen Peter Pace,
Joint Chiefs of Staff chairman

Well, nobody is questioning that. What me and the generals are questioning is his utter lack of vision, his arrogance and the bad decisions he has made. He can be as patriotic as a flag and work his ass off and still he needs to go. In fact, this quote sounds to me like damning with faint praise.
Now, a sixth general has said that there is not a conspiracy between generals to overthrow Rummy, and that his putting in his two cents is merely coincidental.
Well, perhaps they should all get together for tea and cakes and discuss how to best criticize him together, so maybe a concerted effort will have better results. You'd think they would know this in the Army.
If you want to know more about Rummy, Wikipedia has a good, scary summary of his career. Here are the Cliff Notes: Eagle Scout and evil corporate asshole.

  1. How old is Rumsfeld, like 100? He shouldn't be in charge of anything except the positions of his La-Z-Boy.
