Whirl, Splat, Whirl, Splat

The sound that defecation makes when it that in to contact with the rotary oscillator
War Room - "Batiste said that his soldiers were asked to control an area of Iraq as large as West Virginia and never had enough manpower to do so. 'We were forced over time to conduct a series of movements to contact where we only controlled the ground for a moment in time; that's not how you fight an insurgency,' he said. Batiste said that he 'always asked for more troops, within our chain of command.' When those requests were denied, he said, 'we saluted and executed; I had to keep my soldiers alive and focused on the mission at hand.'

George W. Bush has always insisted that he has given commanders in Iraq whatever troop levels they've requested; Batiste's comments suggest either that Bush has been lying or that the military commanders between Bush and men at Batiste's level have failed to pass along the requests for more manpower, knowing that the answer would be no and saving Bush from having to give it."
The lies get thicker, deeper and smellier, sort of like a port-a-potty that has been used daily and cleaned quarterly.

From the NY Times which seems to be leading the charge now that there are a few followers weighed in with an interesting article.
Maj. Gen. Charles H. Swannack Jr., who led troops on the ground in Iraq as recently as 2004 as the commander of the Army's 82nd Airborne Division, on Thursday became the fifth retired senior general in recent days to call publicly for Mr. Rumsfeld's ouster. Also Thursday, another retired Army general, Maj. Gen. John Riggs, joined in the fray.

"We need to continue to fight the global war on terror and keep it off our shores," General Swannack said in a telephone interview. "But I do not believe Secretary Rumsfeld is the right person to fight that war based on his absolute failures in managing the war against Saddam in Iraq."

Another former Army commander in Iraq, Maj. Gen. John Batiste, who led the First Infantry Division, publicly broke ranks with Mr. Rumsfeld on Wednesday. Mr. Rumsfeld long ago became a magnet for political attacks. But the current uproar is significant because Mr. Rumsfeld's critics include generals who were involved in the invasion and occupation of Iraq under the defense secretary's leadership.
Not that the American public would have an opinion or any actual say in the matter.

Imagine that. Americans actually running their own country where there representatives represent them and not the deepest pocket or dirtiest secret. Heresy, sheer heresy I tell ya.
