I am an engineer, i have two bosses, niether have ever built anything in their lives (the way it always is these days).

One of them tells me to do stuff that won't work, and when i suggest we do something diferently he says "just do it".

The other tels me to do stuff that won't quite work and i suggest we do something differently. He says "OK".

Guess which projects go well? Guess which boss i like? can you guess which boss i hate?

If the generals have had their say, and it was done their way, Rums is a good boss IMO ,but he did take to long to deal with this armor issue.

Yea Suddam sure liked him.

He still hasn't dealt with it. When it finally is dealt with The Prince of Darkness doesn't deserve the credit, that soldier who put his ass on the line pointing out the Princes incompetence does.

Regardless of who asked the question, a very valid concern was brought up to the man who should have the answer. He did not. He was dumbfounded and clueless. This is not the leadership our boys in uniform deserve. It seems not having a clue is a predominant trait of this administration.

Rummy wasn't 'set up' anymore than the Marine was 'coached'. It was a simple question, deserved a straightforward answer (as opposed to what was rendered). Rumsfeld's reply was a slap in the face to our troops, as well as arrogant.

It has been over two years, we shouldn't still be playing 'catch-up' with the supplies our troops require.

What's happening in this country when we can't question our leaders? Too bad if the meeting wasn't a feel-good photo op for the administration. That Marine deserves a medal!

I'm surprised Rummy didn't have a banner behind him that said "Mission Accomplished". Oh wait, we already tried that.
