Four years after wiping his ass with the Powell Doctrine (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Powell_Doctrine), Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld (http://tinyurl.com/yeqppl) has enacted his exit strategy, despite the President's repeated pledges to stay the course with his pal Rummy. The news comes after the realization that the "light, nimble force" armed with advanced technology and air supremacy described in the Rumsfeld Doctrine (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rumsfeld_Doctrine) had trouble fighting from entrenched stationary positions against low-tech guerrillas on the ground.

His expected successor is a former CIA director, which may signal a shift from the standing "screw the CIA" (http://sumocat.blogspot.com/2006/11/cia-gets-shaft-again.html) policy of the Bush administration. Short of deploying submarines to Baghdad, he almost could not do any worse than his predecessor... almost.
