Deserving Better

Glenn posts some thoughts on outgoing Defense Secretary Rumsfeld, "the Generals" and History. Enlightening, if you ask me.

Meanwhile, while there's certainly criticisms to make, I can't help but think the man deserved better than he got from critics certainly, but even some of his erstwhile supporters.

The reader email sums it up nicely and I couldn't have said it any better:

So apparently, Don Rumsfeld, who was constantly accused of not listening to his commanders in the field, took the rap because he was . . . er, listening to his commanders in the field! I guess he fell on his sword for appearances' sake, so that when General Abizaid said what he's evidently been saying all along, it would get reported as if it were something new. Nice.
