List of Defense secretary's critics gets longer

It would really make me nervous if Rumsfeld was keeping a list.

A sixth former general joined the criticism of Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld on Thursday, saying Rumsfeld should resign for mishandling the war in Iraq.

And so turns our finger-pointing world. Instead of placing blame they should be trying to fix it.

"We need a new secretary of Defense," retired major general Charles Swannack, former commander of the Army's 82nd Airborne Division, said on CNN. He said Rumsfeld had micromanaged the war.

What's that going to do? That's like buying a new car cause your job sucks. You have to fix the job. You have to fix Iraq. How? I don't fucking know, I'm not a retired Major General. I didn't even go to college. Maybe if we ask really really nicely for them to stop bombing themselves.

Retired major general John Batiste, who commanded the Army's 1st Infantry Division in Iraq in 2003 and 2004 agreed. He told USA TODAY on Thursday that Rumsfeld should step down because he ignored sound military advice about how to secure Iraq after Baghdad fell.

Whatever happened to the strong silent type? Do I think Runsfeld should be put on blast for fucking up in Iraq if he ignored military advice for commanders on the ground in Iraq? Absolutely. But why is this stuff all over the news? In a time of war wouldn't it be a bit better to show unity? We embarass ourselves. The al-Qaeda terror network operatives are hiding in caves and they have more unity than we do. Shame on you America.

If anyone did their job as poorly as this fool, they would've been fired a long ago.
