Fire Rumsfeld  

Friedman calls for Rumsfeld's firing. I second that.

"We are in danger of losing something much more important than just the war in Iraq. We are in danger of losing America as an instrument of moral authority and inspiration in the world. I have never known a time in my life when America and its president were more hated around the world than today. I was just in Japan, and even young Japanese dislike us. It's no wonder that so many Americans are obsessed with the finale of the sitcom "Friends" right now. They're the only friends we have, and even they're leaving...

This administration needs to undertake a total overhaul of its Iraq policy; otherwise, it is courting a total disaster for us all.

That overhaul needs to begin with President Bush firing Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld — today, not tomorrow or next month, today. What happened in Abu Ghraib prison was, at best, a fundamental breakdown in the chain of command under Mr. Rumsfeld's authority, or, at worst, part of a deliberate policy somewhere in the military-intelligence command of sexually humiliating prisoners to soften them up for interrogation, a policy that ran amok."

I don't understand how nobody has been held responsible (i.e. fired) for the intelligence failure of 9-11 and theincompetentlyy conducted War in Iraq. For a President who wants to be the "CEO President", he sure hasn't learned how to run a business. I guess that was obvious when his oil companies went bankrupt, and had to be bailed out by his daddy's friends.
