Donald Rumsfeld's Uncontrolled Erections, et. al

Have apparently earned him this very public criticism by those who should know: six retired generals.

"Citing an atmosphere of 'arrogance' among the top civilian leaders at the Pentagon, another retired general is calling for the resignation of Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld.

"Retired Maj. Gen. John Riggs sees fault in the handling of the military's involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan.

"'I think he should step aside and let someone step in who can be more realistic,' Riggs told NPR's Michele Norris on Thursday.

"Riggs served in the Army for 39 years, attaining the rank of three-star general. He was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross for his actions as a helicopter pilot during Vietnam. He retired in 2005 with the loss of one star in rank after the Army said he had misused contractors.

"Riggs said Rumsfeld and his civilian subordinates do not listen to, or even seek, the advice of professional military officers, except when it is convenient.

"'They only need the military advice when it satisfies their agenda,' Riggs said. 'I think that's a mistake, and that's why I think he should resign.'"

"Riggs says he thinks the military needs more troops on the ground in Iraq to successfully stabilize the country.

"'I think what happened is that we just grossly underestimated the number of soldiers required for the stability phase,'" Riggs said.

"'As a soldier I supported the war in Iraq,' Riggs wrote in an e-mail, answering a follow-up question Thursday afternoon. 'What I did not support was the way it was being mis/micromanaged by [Office of the Secretary of Defense-Rumsfeld. Not sure what his agenda was, but it certainly was not to dominate and stabilize the situation on the ground.'"

A man with a perma-erection can't think straight. Old news. Any woman can tell you that.

What I want to know is, how does Rummy do it even in the iced underwear? (See Has The Ring of Truth blog entry below.)
