Dean & Kerry Call for Rumsfeld to Resign

HeadlineSep 29, 2003

In other fallout from the invasion of Iraq, two of the top Democratic presidential candidates, former Vermont Governor Howard Dean and Massachusetts Senator John Kerry have called on Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld to resign. Kerry said Rumsfeld has handled the Iraq situation in “an arrogant, inappropriate way that has frankly put America at jeopardy.” Dean who also called for the resignation of Deputy Defense Secretary Paul Wolfowitz said, “There is no need to wait until the next election to hold the major architects of this disaster responsible for their gross incompetence. The time has come for the president to fire them.”
