White House stands by Rumsfeld in light of Ex-Generals' Comments

See how easy it is? Remeber how this guy did it?

I don't quite understand how you can tender a resignation (twice?) and then not have it accepted. If you quit a job, then you quit a job. You give your two weeks notice and then you stop showing up. This isn't the first time people have spoke out against the war. You'd think that the opinions of those who were involved with the act of carrying out the operations and overseeing their completion would carry some weight.

UPDATE: More generals are speaking out against Rumsfeld.

I was about to come over here to post about this. It's really hard to see how the Administration can stand by him at this point.

And another thing that's interesting about this is that General DeLong is quoted in the article as a Rumsfield supporter, while Zinni has called for Rumsfeld to be fired. These two men served together in Iraq and even co-authored a book not long ago.

Well, when you have the administration doing things like this it's not a big suprise. It all falls in line with the "16 words" and the "Mission Accomplished" banner and... you get the picture.

I was thinking this whole Rummy thing could be like the Andy Card/Josh Bolton "shake-up" where you deny, deny, deny, then just do it anyway. But I think if Rummy is let go, it'll break W's last remaining front. If Rummy goes, people will want answers and *gasp* accountability on other W measures. It will never happen.

So my question now: If Rumsfeld has tendered his resignation twice, what has made him change his mind to stay on with this administration? Either A) it's a lie that he's offered to resign or B) he's got some sweet, sweet deal coming to him in the near future. Not the ordinary run of the mill deal, good ol' boy, crony deal, but something outrageously spectacular.
