Boehner on Rumsfeld

And via Josh Marshall, Republican John Boehner says not to blame Iraq failures on Rumsfeld, blame them on the soldiers:
BOEHNER: Wolf, I understand that, but let's not blame what's happening in Iraq on Rumsfeld.

BLITZER: But he's in charge of the military.

BOEHNER: But the fact is, the generals on the ground are in charge, and he works closely with them and the president. We've seen this run up in violence as we get closer to the election, as we get closer to Ramadan, same thing we've seen over the last couple of years.

Josh dissects this nicely, and links to the video.
