Fascinating article about a journalist's invitation to lunch with Rummy and assorted Pentagon bigwigs. Clearly, Rummy was doing damage control, but the insights are priceless.

Rumsfeld told me: ``My dad was over-age but volunteered for the Navy. A year later he was the deck officer on an aircraft carrier fighting the war in the Pacific.''

On the way out the defense secretary said, in parting: ``I want you to know that I love soldiers, and I care about soldiers. All of us here do.''

Then why do our forces in Iraq still lack adequate armor? We can allow Halliburton to waste billions of our tax money but we can't afford to properly equip our fighting men and women?
