SecDef Spat on Congressional Oversight

Read the entire WaPo article by Dana Milbank on SecDef Rumfeld's appearances on Capitol Hill yesterday.

The first two graphs:

Two dozen members of the House Armed Services Committee had not yet had their turn to question Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld at yesterday's hearings when he decided he had had enough.

At 12:54, he announced that at 1 p.m. he would be taking a break and then going to another hearing in the Senate. "We're going to have to get out and get lunch and get over there," he said. When the questioning continued for four more minutes, Rumsfeld picked up his briefcase and began to pack up his papers.

It gets worse...
