The "Generals Revolt"

Steve Clemons has a very good discussion of the, six or so, retired generals who have called for Rumsfeld’s dimissal.

While I agree with the generals sentiment, and somewhat wish they had the gumption to fall on their swords rather than wait until retirement, the concept of civilian control of the military, memorialized in our Constituion, dictates that it is not the place of active duty military folks to determine policy. The lunatics running the USA were (almost really) elected so get to make policy, no matter how crazy it might be.
