Donald Rumsfeld finds no way out

By BOB HERBERT
SYNDICATED COLUMNIST

How does Donald Rumsfeld survive as defense secretary?

Much of what has happened to the military on his watch has been catastrophic. In Iraq, more than 1,600 U.S. troops have died and many thousands have been maimed in a war that Rumsfeld mishandled from the beginning and still has no idea how to win. The generals are telling us now that the United States is likely to be bogged down in Iraq for years, and there are whispers circulating about the possibility of "defeat."


Iraq is another Vietnam, whither we like it or not.

Semper Fi

Carl, it is incredibly refreshing to see a Democratic veteran. So many veterans blindly trust and support neocons. You are right on about Iraq/Vietnam. PS My sis and brother in law got their education masters' at Ball State. They used to be caretakers at the Ball's home in Muncie when they were in school Small world, huh!
