Rummy was an outstanding SOD. With lighting speed he orchestrated the defeat of Afghanistan and Iraq's power structure, and entrenched US power in both countries. All this with a minimum of exposer for our troops.

Failure of the Iraqis, out of fear of terrorists, to support the 'freedom' mission , required a new strategy be developed, for an enemy of embedded terrorists rather than of armies.

Hence, Gen. Petreus, Gates to spearhead the new, now successful 'Surge' strategy. It was time for fresh blood to continue our goal for Iraq and Afghanistan.

Thank you Rummy for an outstanding job as SOD.

Padre, you are a victim of the MSM. Shame!!

I couldn't agree more with you. I am a huge Rumsfeld fan. I also liked very much how he dealt with idiotic questions from the media.

My mil pals are equally impressed over his not only having "gone with the military we got"; but that he did an entire redesign of the military WHILE we were fighting a war. And as a consequence, the military has a much meaner, leaner, far more rapid-response military.
