Rep Murtha calls for immediate resignation of Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld

Jack Murtha lays out in his resolution a scathing laundry list of all of Donald Rumsfeld's failures, including not committing enough ground troops, not planning for the aftermath of the war, and failing to get the troops the gear they needed to defend themselves, like body armor, armorized Hum-vees, and training. Besides all that, Murtha accused Rumsfeld of being over-optimistic about the role Iraq oil would play in the war as well as the duration of the war.

I hope Murtha gets what he's after. Rumsfeld, if he were a CEO, would have been fired by now, even if it's not all his fault, directly.
