    Rumsfeld delivers a speech at John Hopkins' School of Advanced Int'l Studies


    Rumors have been circulating that Sen. Joe Lieberman (D-CT) could be tapped to replace the U.S. Secretary of Defense DONALD RUMSFELD.

    Following yesterday’s speech by the Secretary of Defense, in which he painted a fake optimistic picture of Iraq's future, Senator John Kerry issued a statement on RAW STORY saying:

    “Secretary RUMSFELD today sent dangerous mixed signals about Iraq. Does the Defense Secretary really just throw up his hands and accept that on-going attacks are inevitable in Iraq for the foreseeable future? Is he now admitting that the BUSH Administration's mistakes have made Iraq what it was not before the war, a haven for ‘terrorists’?

    “The PRESIDENT owes it to our troops serving in IRAQ to remove Secretary Rumsfeld and replace him at the Pentagon with a Defense Secretary who understands the situation on the ground in Iraq and who will advance, not undermine, American values around the world.

    “Brave American troops are serving heroically under very difficult circumstances. Time and again, they have been put in greater danger by the mistakes of this Secretary of Defense who refuses to tell the truth about what is happening in IRAQ and pushes aside anyone who dares speak truth to power. The mistakes are stacked one upon another. The Pentagon is reported to be paying Iraqi newspapers to carry ghostwritten news stories, undermining American credibility. The Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff had to publicly correct Secretary Rumsfeld because he didn't think American troops had an obligation to stop torture.

    “We need a fresh start at the Pentagon for the good of American troops, so brave Americans stop paying the terrible price of this Defense Secretary's mistakes.”

    MR. RUMSFELD, who made his remarks during a speech at John Hopkins' School of Advanced International Studies in Washington, claimed that the American occupying troops are making magnificent progress in IRAQ , and that the development achieved cannot be measured by the level of bloodshed or the number of daily attacks.

    His speech coincided with the Pentagon’s announcement of appointing a retired four-star general to lead a taskforce to seek solutions regarding the threat posed by improvised explosive devices (IED), rebels are currently using against the U.S invaders.

    The Secretary of defense came after a week long struggle by the AMERICAN PRESIDENT GEORGE W. BUSH to shore up declining support for the IRAQ war among after the latest uncover of a new U.S. scandal involving bribing Iraqi journalists publish fake news stories in favor of the U.S.-led occupation in Iraq.
