Yet Another General Calls for Rummy’s Resignation

CNN Reports

The commander who led the elite 82nd Airborne Division during its mission in Iraq has joined the chorus of retired generals calling on Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld to leave the Pentagon.

"I really believe that we need a new secretary of defense because Secretary Rumsfeld carries way too much baggage with him," retired Maj. Gen. Charles Swannack told CNN's Barbara Starr on Thursday.

Swannack is the second general who served in Iraq under Rumsfeld to call for him to resign.

Retired Maj. Gen. John Batiste — who led the 1st Infantry Division in northern Iraq in 2004-2005 — called for Rumsfeld's resignation during an interview Wednesday on CNN.

 You're doing a heck of a job, Rummy.
