Wrong Time to Lose the Auto-Pen

leave a comment »

Tough week for Rummy… First this

In a statement first issued to Stars and Stripes, a military newspaper, Rumsfeld said he would begin signing the letters himself. Defense Department officials said Monday that Rumsfeld’s initial use of an automated signature machine, a tool commonly used by public officials for mass mailings, was only to assure that the families received their letters quickly.

..then this:

A guerrilla attack on a dining tent at a U.S. base in Iraq killed 19
American soldiers and three other people on Tuesday in the deadliest
strike on U.S. forces since last year’s war to oust Saddam Hussein.

Wrong time to get your auto-pen taken away, no? I’m sure he’ll soldier through all 19 signatures, though, since, as his Boss says, in full non-sequiturial aploom: "I know Secretary Rumsfeld’s heart."
