US not losing War, Rumsfeld insists

U.S. Defence Secretary Donald Rumsfeld came under attack at a Senate hearing Thursday, as he insisted the military shouldn't set a deadline for withdrawing American troops from Iraq.

Sen. Edward M. Kennedy of Massachusetts, a Democrat, condemned as 'gross errors and mistakes' in the U.S. military campaign in Iraq. He demanded Rumsfeld step down.

'In baseball, it's three strikes, you're out. What is it for the Secretary of Defense?' Kennedy asked at the fractious Senate Armed Services Committee hearing. 'Isn't it time for you to resign?' he asked.

The Defence Secretary rejected calls from some senators that the military set a timetable to pull troops out of Iraq, calling it a 'mistake' that would 'throw a lifeline to terrorists.'

He's Don Rumsfeld, top man in charge of the U.S. military. He must know what he's talking about. Right? We can trust him to do the right things and make the right decisions. Right? Only the best people with the highest moral and ethical standards rise to such positions of power. Right?

Of coarse scum also rises to the top, but the people running the show in D.C. right now are decent folks who only have everyone's best interests in mind. Right? After all, they are fighting that monolithic concept - TERROR................Right?
