2 or 3 years ago this announcement might have saved some American lives.

why didn't he step down before the elections? IMHO that would have saved the house and senate for the Reps. oh well

He "accomplished" what he wanted to do in pushing his twisted worldview into our country's national security and defense policy.

I'm sure he's more than happy to go back into the private sector at this point.

Great move, but Bush still needs to be impeached for his dereliction of duty and inaction in Iraq and New Orleans- it all starts at the top.

Being incompetent is not grounds for Impeachment. You have to committ a "high crime or misdemeanor." I think Bush is incompetent, but the fact is that he has not committed a "high crime or misdemeanor." At least, there is really no proof or even a credible allegation that he has.

thank god. Unbelievable the lack of accountability Bush had for his own adminstration.

How so? A pullout wouldn't have happened regardless. I think having Rumsfeld removed doesn't change anything. JMHO.

Maybe I should have stretched it to 4 years ago.

Assuming we still went to war in the first place, maybe without Rummy's decision making we wouldn't have disbanded the Iraqi army, maybe we would have sent more troops, maybe we would have pulled out after topping Saddam. He was a huge force in making those decisions.
