"Rumsfeld one of the worst" -- John McCain

Senator John McCain, who said and did nothing when it could have made a difference, now starts to criticize the performance of former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld according to a news story by BRUCE SMITH of the Associated Press
Republican presidential candidate John McCain said Monday the war in Iraq has been mismanaged for years and former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld will be remembered as one of the worst in history.

"We are paying a very heavy price for the mismanagement — that's the kindest word I can give you — of Donald Rumsfeld, of this war," the Arizona senator told an overflow crowd of more than 800 at a retirement community near Hilton Head Island, S.C. "The price is very, very heavy and I regret it enormously."

If "maverick" Senator McCain had spoken up when the mistakes were being made and his party was in the majority it might have made a difference.
