We’ve been treated to a steady diet of “Rummy against the ropes but refuses to resign” stories for, oh, about three or four years. He won’t resign this time, and even if he tries, it won’ t be accepted. And he won’t be fired. Get over it.
Here’s an interesting bit from the MSNBC.com story this image is from:
Fueling the debate in recent days was the release of a classified intelligence report that concluded that the Iraq war has helped fuel a new generation of extremists and increased the overall terrorist threat.
Hmmm. As far as Murdoc knows, it was leaked information, not a released report, that “concluded that the Iraq war has helped fuel a new generation of extremists.” When the summary of the said report was released, it wasn’t nearly as “conclusive” as critics would like to think. But, hey, what are a few little facts when trying to nail Rummy to the wall?
UPDATE: Jay Tea at Wizbang has more on this.
