Consistent story?

When asked why U.S. soldiers in Iraq had to scrounge for makeshift armor, Secretary of Defense Rumsfeld replied, “We have to go to war with the army we have, not the army we want.”

Rumsfeld makes it sound like we suddenly found ourselves faced with a war in Iraq. This statement is contrary to what Bush has been trying to sell us for two years: The decision to go to war in Iraq was not a knee-jerk reaction but took painstaking soul-searching and was well planned for.

The Bush administration needs to get their heads together and come up with a consistant story that we can all believe.
