Stormin' Norm rips Rumsfeld
I think the Rummy resignation snowball is gaining speed, since Schwarzkopf is ripping him a new one right after McCain did.
Stormin’ Norman Schwarzkopf said yesterday he was “angry” at Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld’s response to a soldier who complained he and his fellow grunts in Iraq lack sufficient armor plating.
…”They [the troops] deserve every bit of protection we can give them,” Schwarzkopf scowled in an interview with “Hardball” host Chris Matthews on MSNBC. “I was very, very disappointed – let me put it stronger – I was angry by the words of the secretary of defense.”
More than half of the more than 1,200 U.S. troops killed in Iraq have come from insurgent attacks on the vehicles.
“When he [Rumsfeld] laid it all on the Army, I mean, as if he as the secretary of defense didn’t have anything to do with it, the Army was over there doing it themselves screwing up,” Schwarzkopf said.
