The top US general defended the leadership of Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, saying it is inspired by God.I wonder if that consoles the families of the 2787 soldiers who died in Iraq?
"He leads in a way that the good Lord tells him is best for our country," said Marine General Peter Pace, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.
Rumsfeld is "a man whose patriotism focus, energy, drive, is exceeded by no one else I know ... quite simply, he works harder than anybody else in our building," Pace said at a ceremony at the Southern Command (Southcom) in Miami.I'd say that Pace is angling for a promotion, but he's already the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs! Maybe he's trying to demonstrate loyalty in an effort to keep his job. BushCo, Rummy in particular, has shown that they're not above ruining (or ending) people's careers for 'disloyalty.'
God's gotta be getting pretty pissed at the Bush Administration. Bush was chosen by God to be president and promptly screwed up every part of the country he touched. His invasion of Iraq, as instructed by God, has proved to be an utter failure.
If God was really talking to George W. Bush, you think he might have mentioned that Katrina would be worse than the Administration assumed. He might have mentioned on September 10th that bad things were afoot.
I guess God only tells Bush things that help get Republicans elected. How strange...
