Do you think Bush will allow that? Rumsfeld has offered his resignation a few times and Bush hasn't accepted it, but instead has talked him into staying on. It could just be a publicity stunt to draw attention away from the election last night....

What was his reason?

Surrender the booty, and let me get my hands on that beautiful treasure chest!!

He actually hasn't announced anything yet. At this point it is still just a so-called leak from a "defence official," this will develop over the next couple hours

You are right, its no win war for USA
In the end USA will pull out of Iraq with nothing to show for it.
Bush should be impeached for his lies
Rumsfeld was made scape goat and fired.

his resignation was long overdue.

when you turn your bike on, does it return the favor?

Bush is too narrow-minded to choose anyone whose opinion differs from his own.
