Rumsfeld resigned on November SIXTH

Donald Rumsfeld resigned as defense secretary before last year's November election but his decision wasn't announced until after the voting, according to his resignation letter obtained by Reuters on Wednesday.

The letter was dated November 6, the day before voters, angered by Iraq, went to the polls and tossed Bush 's Republican cronies from power in Congress . According to a stamp on the letter, Bush saw it on election day. As we all know, bush didn't announce the resignation until after the election. Many Republicans blame this for their rout on that day.

Reuters obtained the letter from a U.S. official on Wednesday after the Pentagon in April said it did not have a copy. They had twice before sought access to the letter under the Freedom of Information Act but were told by the Defense Department that it did not have the letter. Defense Department spokesmen had repeatedly refused to release the resignation letter in November 2006.

Why does none of this surprise me?

Bush has never been above board on anything he's done. He's a pathological liar and a cheat. Having him as our president has to be one of the biggest shames of this country.

This doesn't surprise me at all. Everything that comes out of the Peoples House these days are lies spoken by a bunch of liars.

God Bless.

we haven't a clue as to when he really resigned. they allegedly couldn't find a copy of the letter until now. come on. they lie about everything- and who's to say that he really resigned before the election? and why is this only coming out now?

I have no doubt, whether there is anything on paper or not, that Rummy is still running the show over there. His dirty finger prints are all over this troop surge and continued incompetence of the war. Bush never really lets anyone go, he just puts it on paper so everyone will think they're gone.

This one is weird. Frankly, I don't think it would have made a difference in the votes one way or the other, so what purpose did the lie serve? The only answer that comes to mind is that the fear the truth so much that telling it once might set a precedent that they would not wish to follow.

I guess Mike Sylvester isn't the only one that has trouble getting Freedom of Information Acts out of the government. (That's a bit of a local blog joke).
