Pace-speak

Now it’s the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Peter Pace, who has stepped forward in the ever-ratcheting debate over the track record and tenure of Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld. In honoring his code and defending his boss, Gen. Pace may have been more candid than he intended.

“People can question my judgment or his judgment,” conceded Pace. “But they should never question the dedication, patriotism and the work ethic of Secretary Rumsfeld.”

Precisely.

No one is denying that Rumsfeld is dedicated, patriotic, conscientious — and rhetorically quick on his feet. It’s all about highly questionable judgment – and accountability. When “liberation” kick starts looting – of arsenals and munitions dumps as well as museums — you know the game plan is flawed.
