Sec. Rumsfeld to step down? I have to say, I really didn't see this coming, assuming that the announcement is not premature. Link from CNN. Personally, I am not too knowledgeable about Rumsfeld's impact on the Iraq war and other matters, but given the number of (former?) military officers who have stated a lack of confidence in him, I'd say a change would probably be a good thing. Anyone have a more informed perspective on this?
