There are now more and even stronger calls. for Rumsfeld’s resignation. One editorial read: “This was not just a failure of leadership at the local command level. This was a failure that ran straight to the top. Accountability here is essential — even if that means relieving top leaders from duty in a time of war.” Was this just another call from a group a liberals that should, as Cheney has suggested, get off Rummy’s case?
Only if that’s how one thinks of the Army Times.
It is important, however, that the press spends its efforts covering the story itself (ie, what happened and what is happening in Iraq) rather than being consumed by the inside baseball analysis of Rummy’s job security.
