    You realize that Rumsfeld isnt going to resign dont you? He doesn't care what Anti war hecklers do or say. Why should he? They havent contributed to society. Who cares what a heckler says? Why give them power over yourself?

    Even if Rumsfeld had wanted to resign, there is no way he could without Democrats acting as though they had a huge victory. Just the sheer fact that Democrats are demanding he resign so much makes it impossible to do so.

    I read that article. And Ray seems to have some Israel issues for sure. But it seems to me, and correct me if I'm wrong, that the main objection of this blog to McGovern is that he disagreed with Rumsfeld and they think Rumsfeld's word should be taken over his. Is that about right.

    BTW, McGovern, for whatever else he is, is also this:

    We may as well just unclassify everything---why have any secrets?

    Maybe they should stop "classifying" things that have nothing to do with our security and everything to do with keeping secret the things our government does.

    Big difference. If it were really about "security" then they'd obey the FISA laws for a start. The only reason to keep that info from the Courts is they want to hide who they're listening to.

    Seems the 4th Amendment makes that a no-no.
