President Bush reverses policy on providing commanders what they request

Today, in a public statement President Bush apparently finally put to rest a policy of providing military commanders with everything they requested to win the Global War on Terror and the War in Iraq.

Responding to the increasing calls by the upper echelons of the US Military arguing for the resignation and/or firing of Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfield as an ongoing obstacle to progress in the war in Iraq , President Bush flatly refused, backing Rumsfield strongly.

Senior administration officials quickly denied that this reflected any substantive change in the longstanding administration policy with respect to supporting our military and satisfying all the requests of the leaders of our brave men and women on the front lines.

To which most astute Americans said, "Duh."
