Army Times calls for Rummy's resignation
(CNN) -- An editorial to be published Monday in independent publications that serve the four main branches of the U.S. military will call for President Bush to replace Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld.
"Basically, the editorial says, it's clear now, from some of the public statements that military leaders are making, that he's lost the support and respect of the military leadership," said Robert Hodierne, senior managing editor for the publications' parent company Army Times Publications.
"That they're starting to go public with that now, with their disagreements, added up with all of the other missteps we believe he's made, that it's time for him to be replaced," Hodierne.
Army Times Publications publishes the Army Times, Navy Times, Air Force Times and the Marine Corps Times.
It is the second time the publications have called for Rumsfeld to resign.
Bush has no intention to listen to the military about Rumsfeld. Just another example of how the impotency and ineptitude of the Bush administration is ineffective in a very important conflict. If Bush had combat experience and didn't escape real service by joining the National Guard he wouldn't ignore the pleas of the military. Truly disgraceful.
The Bush administration needs to head the pleas of the military; replace Rumsfeld with a competent Secretary of Defense, fund the troops properly, ensure they have necessary equipment, and reinforce positions in Iraq with more men on the ground.
