We could have had enough US troops to decimate the retreating Taliban and al Qaeda. The troop level issue in Afghanistan is open to fair debate.
However, in Iraq, events proved Rummy wrong. McCain is an absolute ass about a lot of things. But in the Iraq troop level debate, IMO McCain was right and Rummy was wrong.

Rumsfeld was right on Afghanistan. He was wrong on Iraq.
He is right on McCain.
