Last week George Bush said Donald Rumsfeld would be staying until the end of his second term. Today Bush said he had a meeting with Rumsfed’s successor, Robert Gates, this past Sunday afternoon, two days before the election results. So what’s going on? Who put so much pressure on Bush that he decided to dump Rumsfeld before the election? My guess it was senior republicans like John McCain and John Warner. Now there likely will be a change in the direction of the Iraq war when the Baker-Hamilton report comes out later this month. At least I hope so.
DID RUMSFELD WALK THE PLANK?
