Murtha Resolution: Rumsfeld Must Resign

Posted on Sep 13, 2006
Rumsfeld and Murtha
From Huffington Post

Rep. Jack Murtha and Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld

From the actual resolution:

... Therefore, be it resolved that————

It is the sense of the Congress that, for the good of the country, the United States of America must restore credibility both at home and abroad and that the first step toward restoring that credibility must be to demonstrate accountability for the mistakes that have been made in prosecuting the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq by immediately effecting the resignation of Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld and replacing him with someone capable of leading the nation’s military in a strategy to resolve our deployment in Iraq, prevent regression in Afghanistan, reconstitute our military readiness, and refocus on the threats to national security posed by diffuse and proliferating terrorist cells as well as belligerent states.

I wish Murtha would resign. He is a disgrace to the uniform he used to wear, and he has betrayed the trust of the brave men and women who have volunteered to fight for freedom against Islamofacism.

My suspicious mind returns again and again to the question:

What has Donald Rumsfeld got on GWB that would prevent the President from firing him?

Or am I just reading too much into this. Perhaps Donald Rumsfeld is simply incompetent and GWB is just too simple to realize it.

Or perhaps GWB would rather be at the wheel when the whole thing goes over the cliff than be seen not to know what’s going on or what to do about it.

Either way, folks, we’re screwed!

The chicken hawks are having a hard time making this critic be quiet!
