The Right Man at the Right Time

By Janet Parshall
Beyond the News

Getting rid of Donald Rumsfeld is a bad idea and one the commander-in-chief has steadfastly refused.

We are a nation at war and changing leadership in the middle of battle is proven historically to be very risky. Removing the secretary of defense now would signal retreat to the Iraqi government and would become cannon fodder for all the terrorist media outlets.

For those who think Rumsfeld is responsible for blunders in Iraq, we need to remind them that Saddam Hussein was given ample warning that the coalition was coming--in fact, he was given too much time, thanks to the demand that the U.N. give its approval prior to the use of force.

Those critics calling for Rumsfeld's resignation have yet to offer an alternative. No one understands the global war on terror better than he. He's taken his job very seriously--and he's kept his charge to transform the military.

He is the right man for the right job at the right time.
