WASHINGTON (Reuters) – President Bush strongly backed Donald Rumsfeld on Monday and said the nation owed him a debt of gratitude, countering calls by some Democrats for the defense secretary to resign over his handling of the Iraqi prisoner abuse scandal.
After a meeting with Rumsfeld, military leaders and other top administration officials at the Pentagon, Bush told Rumsfeld, “Thank you for your leadership. You are courageously leading our nation in the war against terror.”
“You’re doing a superb job. You’re a strong secretary of defense and our nation owes you a debt of gratitude,” Bush said.
Then again, if you agree with the Shrub, then you’ve also got your head up your own ass. It really is that black and white, people. Rumsfeld and Meyers didn’t even bother to read reports on prisoner abuse.
Rumsfeld must go, followed by the rest of the so-called War Cabinet and the President.
