"These events occurred on my watch. As secretary of defense, I am accountable for them. I take full responsibility," [Donald]Rumsfeld told the Senate Armed Services Committee
Donald Rumsfeld committed virtual hara-kiri today accepting full responsibility for the prisoner torture scandal. Like a good soldier he covered his bosses tail.
Now, the question is, when more pictures and video make there way into the media will Bush continue to stand by his man? The GOP Congress is closing ranks even giving Rummy a slight commendation today from Bill Frist for, "...taking responsibility of what happened." That may not be enough.
Dead man walking?
