From “Grieving Families Outraged over Rumsfeld Condolence Letters“, The Christian Broadcasting Network, December 20, 2004:
A deadly weekend in Iraq could spell more trouble ahead for next month’s elections. And the President’s defense chief is at the center of controversy, this time over condolence letters to families of military soldiers killed in action.
But relatives of the deceased soldiers, and even some congressional leaders, are outraged that Rumsfeld used a machine to stamp his signature on more than 1,000 letters that have already been mailed.
And now for the completely unanticipated A.P. followup: “Bush Comes to Rumsfeld’s Defense”
4 replies on “Because, apparently, Sec. Rumsfeld’s usage of an automated-signature device is the single greatest reason to call for his stepping down”
At least he’s willing to sign Iraq’s condolence letter personally, since his mismanagement of the war has virtually killed their chance of a succesful election.
Wouldn’t want the great man’s hand to cramp, otherwise he couldn’t sign all those “stop-loss” measures to feed the maw that is Iraq.
The absence of a personal signature is not the signature of personal absence.
The absence of a brain is not the brain of absence.
Give me turkee now!
