Rumsfeld Bids Adieu, He's Gone
Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld got a big Pentagon send-off today.
Combative to the last, Rumsfeld took a slap at advocates of withdrawing U.S. troops from the war, now in its fourth year with more than 2,900 Americans dead.
"It may well be comforting to some to consider graceful exits from the agonies and, indeed, the ugliness of combat," Rumsfeld said, choking up slightly as he capped a roster of speakers at his pomp-filled goodbye ceremony. "But the enemy thinks differently."
Memo to Mr. Rumsfeld: Don't let the door hit you on the way out.
