    um, i don't really see why this is such a big deal, but at the same time i guess when you compare rumsfield's treatment of the famiiles to pres. bush, rumsfield is put to shame

    Having Rumsfeld sign condolence letters is pathetic. If you dont understand what you are getting into when you join the military, and if your family isnt fully supportive of your choice then maybe you need to get a new family and maybe you need to rethink your choice of profession.

    Last time I checked this was a ALL VOLUNTEER MILITARY!

    This is just another liberal "GOTCHA!" to Rumsfeld...as if he has nothing better to do...you know, like try to make decisions to keep the other thousands of men and women in Iraq and Afganistan alive!

    I'm sure that it is nicer to get a signed letter than a form letter...but I really think that it makes next to no difference to a grieving family.

    He says he writes them all himself. Isn't that what's most important? I was surprised by that. I mean,isn't it more important what's in the letter and that he wrote as opposed to him signing it? JMO I think the media is on a mission to get him to resign,as if the terrorists will go away in Iraq if he isn't in charge anymore.

    He's pissed off some big boys in Washington---I was glad to see Bush defend him so firmly. He's just the next whippin boy for the left.
