Ousting Rumsfeld: 11 Stars and Counting

Yet another retired general is calling for Defense Secretary Rumsfeld's head. Add to the list Army Maj. Gen. John Batiste, who commanded the 1st Infantry Division in Iraq in 2004-2005.

Says Batiste of leadership at the Pentagon:
I think we need a fresh start. We need leadership up there that respects the military as they expect the military to respect them. And that leadership needs to understand teamwork.
Batiste (2 stars) joins Marine Corps Lt. Gen. Gregory Newbold (3 stars), Gen. Anthony Zinni (4 stars) and Maj. Gen. Pauld D. Eaton (2 stars) in saying that Rumseld should be canned.
