When Did Rumsfeld Get Respect Back?

The NYT is once again showing its age and naiveté. A guest column was written about the prospect of additional troops to Afghanistan by none other than Donald Rumsfeld.

Now, I like Rumsfeld personally and think that he had good ideas about being Secretary of Defense--when he did it under Gerald Ford. However, Rumsfeld's ideas about fighting counterinsurgency shouldn't be taken too highly. Rumsfeld's brash style is a positive in my book, but in this case his opinion isn't really welcomed.

With Obama talking bipartisanship and gaining a strange amount of Republican support, then maybe he can give Rumsfeld his third go-around as Secretary of Defense. I wouldn't be all that surprised.
