Rumsfeld answers unscripted questions

"Why do we soldiers have to dig through local landfills for pieces of scrap metal and compromised ballistic glass to up-armor our vehicles?''

"We do not have proper armored vehicles to carry with us north''

These are quotes from a group of over 2,300 troops stationed in Kuwait who stood in front of Donald Rumsfeld as he spoke about the invasion of Iraq.

Rumsfeld sttod by his guns in his support that this is a necessary war and that it is one which America will win.

I find it odd that after the election season has ended that a member of the Bush inner circle actually made a public appearance where questions which were not pre-approved were asked. There has to be some reason as to why a public appearance happened. Maybe the Bushies are changing their take on things. Maybe they are trying to come off as more human.

I doubt it, though.
