If Rummy Is So Terrible, Why Didn’t Generals Resign?

That’s the question Tom Lipscomb asks today in the Chicago Sun-Times. Here’s an excerpt:

There is a great furor over whether the opinions of a number of retired high-ranking officers should tip the balance in the ongoing debate over the resignation of Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld.

But the question really isn’t whether Rumsfeld should resign. He has already resigned several times and had President Bush tear up his letters of resignation. He clearly is taking responsibility for his actions on a continuing basis.
