Holding Rumsfeld accountable in Fairbanks

Last night, and the Thursday before, the people of the Tanana Valley turned out to hold Secretary of Defense Rumsfeld accountable for the lousy job he's doing. In a government by the people, it is vitally important that, if our elected representatives are unwilling to hold their appointees accountable, that the people do it themselves. And it's quite clear that the White House and Congress are unwilling to call incompetents on the carpet.

There were so many people that they weren't able to finish taking testimony on resolution 2006-37 (PDF), and so will be holding a special meeting next Wednesday. That makes three meetings on this subject. The testimony has been running about three to one in favor of the original and strongest resolution.
