Resign, Rumsfeld

The Economist is arguing that Rumsfeld should resign. I am inclined to agree with them. Although Rumsfeld is rightly credited with incredible war planning, his post-war planning in a number of areas has left a great deal to be desired for. This war has always been about the moral standing of the US in toppling Saddam's regime. Because of this scandal and poor planning that standing is now in jeopardy. Our success in Iraq is not so much based on quelling Shia and Sunni resistance. Our success in Iraq is based on people believing that the war was worth the sacrifice. New ideas are necessary and in order to implement them, we need a new leader of the Defense Department.
