Rumsfeld: ‘You Go To War With The Senate You Have’ By Scott Ott

Embattled Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld today responded to criticism from Senators John McCain, Trent Lott, Susan Collins, Chuck Hagel and others by saying, “You go to war with the Senate you have. It’s not the Senate you might want or wish to have at a later time.”

Meanwhile, President George Bush said he will not request additional funding in order to “up armor” Mr. Rumsfeld.

“I give Secretary Rumsfeld what he requests,” said Mr. Bush. “He has expressed no fear of the insurgents in the Senate. It looks like he has all the steel he needs.”
