Straws atop the camel

Things like this make me think of the incredible damage the Rumsfeld/Bush/Cheney troika are doing to one of the bulwarks of the United States' security - the absolute trust in the notion of civilian control of the military. While I in no way think General Schoomaker or his colleagues would consider disobeying an order from their command chains, the fact is that as the article indicates the Military has begun to see (or, worse, has long seen) the current civilian administration as a primary cause of many of its troubles - and the situation is getting worse, not better. Although we can expect loud and angry noises from the GOP-controlled Congress, they (and the Vice President) are busy admitting that they don't bother to read reports on the situation.

How does this make us safer?
