Rummy Must Go!

A vote for Brian Bilbray (CA-50) is a vote for Donald Rumsfeld. A vote that each of the four military newspapers says is misplaced.
Rumsfeld has lost credibility with the uniformed leadership, with the troops, with Congress and with the public at large. His strategy has failed, and his ability to lead is compromised. And although the blame for our failures in Iraq rests with the secretary, it will be the troops who bear its brunt.

This is not about the midterm elections. Regardless of which party wins Nov. 7, the time has come, Mr. President, to face the hard bruising truth:

Donald Rumsfeld must go.
As long as Brian Bilbray and his fellow rubber stamp Republicans are running the show in congress, no one will hold Donald Rumsfeld accountable. That needs to change for the sake of our troops in Iraq.
