    ...the fact that he's still here.

    Apparently, Rummy tried to resign twice over the Abu Ghraib scandal, but Bush wouldn't accept his resignation.

    Also of interest: check out the reason why Rumsfeld won't be attending a European defense summit next week:

    Yeah, even if it's "just" a lawsuit, as opposed to a criminal charge, I don't think Rummy wants to be caught up in a war crimes trial.

    I'd submit that having to skip an international Defence Ministers' meeting for fear of being charged with War Crimes does make him rather less than "effective".

    This somehow absolves Rumsfeld or the President? I think not.

    Both are at fault, a token gesture from one friend to another hardly makes what either have done better.

    Spinsanity!!!!!
