UPI article

This UPI article is so true.  It's over Rummy.   

Even worse for Rumsfeld and his coterie of neo-conservative true believers who have run the Pentagon for the past 3½ years, three major institutions in the Washington power structure have decided that after almost a full presidential term of being treated with contempt and abuse by them, it's payback time.

Those three institutions are: The United States Army, the Central Intelligence Agency and the old, relatively moderate but highly experienced Republican leadership in the United States Senate.

None of those groups is chopped liver: Taken together they comprise a devastating Grand Slam.

One thing that needs to be relearned, again and again, is that you can push a modern bureaucracy only so far before it kicks you in the ass (an emergent property of bureaucracy is to resist radical changes in direction). [John Robb's Weblog]
