Snap Me in Your Breach I Want To Be Your Bullet

Two things you need to know, if you don't.

First, all 4 military newspapers today call for the ouster of Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld:

The papers are the Army Times, Air Force Times, Navy Times and Marine Corps Times. They are published by the Military Times Media Group, a subsidiary of Gannett Co., Inc. President Bush said this week that he wanted Rumsfeld to serve out the next two years.

"We say that Rumsfeld must be replaced,” Alex Neill, the managing editor of the Army Times, told The Virginian-Pilot Friday night. “Given the state of affairs with Iraq and the military right now, we think it’s a good time for new leadership there.”

The editorial was based on a decision of the publications’ editorial board, Neill told the paper.

Second, no matter what blather BushCo offers, Iraq isn't getting better. Check out this interview with NPR's Anne Garrels and the Washington Post's Anthony Shadid that ran Friday on Morning Edition. Listen to the tone of poor Anne Garrels' voice--that's a voice that has seen too much and seems pretty hopeless, no?
