I find the overlap between the group of people who demanded Howell Raines’ head on a platter when the extent of Jayson Blair’s plagiarism was discovered and the group that thinks that Donald Rumsfeld should stick it out despite the torture revelations interesting. Raines was right to resign, and should have done so long before he did. Howell Raines had to resign because he didn’t know about the horrible thing that was going on in his organization; I don’t understand why Rumsfeld isn’t being held to the same standard.
