Another General Complains About Rummy

On Fox "news network," no less, the very same that Dick Cheney always insists be tuned in before he takes occupancy of any hotel room booked for him.

It's news in itself when Fox airs news critical of anyone in this Administration.

I really can't help but gloat. Last time I checked, the number was only six, now it's eight.

Retired Marine General Paul Van Riper said he "constantly talks with many active duty and retired senior officers who share his feelings that Secretary Rumsfeld has not fought the Iraq war competently. He told Fox that Rumsfeld has run the Pentagon through intimidation and that a change in leadership is needed."

Excerpt from the Fox broadcast: "If this leader is not capable of doing it, now going in excess of five years, has not demonstrated he is, then perhaps it is time to find a new one. If I was the president, I would have relieved him three years ago."

Roll call of anti-Rummy voices so far: Generals Swannack, Newbold, Eaton, Zinni, Batiste, Riggs, Clark, & now Van Riper.
