Donald Rumsfeld said yesterday (according to NPR's news) that he was still weighing the recommendations of the Nine Eleven Commission before deciding if they would be implemented. He said that he would not implement any recommendations that would prevent intelligence from reaching soldiers in the field. This last statement implying that the intent of the commission was to weaken US intelligence.
Who does Secretary Rumsfeld think he is, Alexander Haig?
President Bush has let Rumsfeld. Wolfowitz and Cheney divert the war against our real enemies and thus weakening our defense against real terrorism. The president needs to remind them that he, Mr. Bush, is president. It is the President and our Congress who will decide how to implement the ideas presented by the Nine Eleven report. Not his secretary.
