Rumsfeld resigns

As predicted, the fall of a once powerful architect of war and the man who made 'shock and awe' a household phrase.

Loved by few but Republican diehards, but known for his occasional insightful slips of the tongue, could 'Rummy' feel the need to
set the record straight and thereby become the superwhistleblower whose confessional tendencies will bring the house of Bush-Cheney tumbling?

Go on, Donald, we're listening. Tell us how it was for you.,,1942763,00.html

The 3 things Donald Harold Rumsfeld and I have in common are...

First name, middle name.

And neither of us are secretary of defense

I'd forgive him if he

I'd forgive him if he spilled the beans on 9/11 and the New World Order plans

Id rather see him

Id rather see him waterboarded to get the info

I have to give Donald a lot of credit

for his legendary known knowns, known unknowns, and unknown unknowns statement. It's really a very useful insight. It's the unknown unknowns that will bite you in the ass every time.

Rumsfeld: "Deception is reality"

"Resign? I don't know why that there is this...kind of....this group of yourselves.....this sort of folklore (hands wailing in circles) that insist that I have lied to the American people. Resign?.....that's proposterous.....I never said anything of the sort."

Ex-CIA Replacement

Has anyone given any thought as to why Rumsfeld didn't resign prior to the elections?

Do you think that the Republicans wanted to lose?

They had to know that they were losing respect even amongst many Republicans..... There had to be a reason that they waited.

Then they hire this guy who has deep connections to George Sr.....

A guy who had to "play ball" to be the only member of the CIA to go from bottom notch to top notch.

GATES is a PLAYER....since 1966

Wayne Madsen had good advance intel on this...

On October 24, WMR wrote the following:

"There is something afoot, in a very Shakespearean way, in the White House. Preparing for a post-election massacre of the GOP and the resignation of Donald Rumsfeld as Defense Secretary, two factions are emerging within the White House. One is the neo-con faction surrounding potential scapegoat Vice President Dick Cheney. This faction includes Cheney's own staffers and his and Rumsfeld's sympathizers in the Pentagon, National Security Council, State Department, and media and think tanks. The other is the faction coalescing around the other potential scapegoat -- George W. Bush. This is the most interesting faction as it consists of George H. W. Bush and his closest friends -- James Baker III, Lee Hamilton, former CIA Director Robert Gates, Alan Simpson, Sandra Day O'Connor, and other past luminaries of the George H. W. Bush administration."

Bush's choice to replace Rumsfeld is one of his new inner-circle advisers, Robert Gates. The circling of the wagons in the pending Bush-Cheney battle has begun. Many neocons, including Richard Perle and Ken Adelman, sensing that Cheney and the neocon cause is in trouble, have recently backed down from their early cheerleading for the Iraq war.


After Madsen reported this, but before the election, we saw the Pearle/Neo Con anti-Bush role concerning Iraq article in Vanity Fair.

Byzantine machinations afoot.

I agree . . .

To be continued . . . and to be watched . . . very closely.
