Hmmm...I guess better late than never, huh Rummy?
It appears that, on his way out the door, Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld may have FINALLY joined the reality-based community (a girl can dream, right?)
The New York Times reports that on November 6 (the day before the Democrats re-took control of Congress), Rummy wrote his boss a classified memo that basically said the administration's strategy in Iraq was not working. (Geez, what was his first clue?)
In part, Rummy told Bush in the memo "In my view it is time for a major adjustment. Clearly, what U.S. forces are currently doing in Iraq is not working well enough or fast enough." Rummy offered several options, including troop reduction, although he made no specific recommendation about which option Bushie should choose.
You know things are going bad for the Emperor-in-Chief when one of his last true believers starts telling him things aren't working.
