This one

Stakes high in battle between Rumsfeld, generals

has some interesting things to say about the Generals. To everyone who cried out "why didn't they speak out then or quit in protest" it seems that a number of them did. One was offered command of a Corps (the next job up from Division Commander) and refused so he could retire. One Marine was fast-tracked to become the Commandant of the Marine Corps but instead he retired, obstensibly so he could speak out. So ha!.

And the journalist presents a list of points of contention and then addresses each one, providing his rationale and facts supporting it. Very well done. (his facts still need to be confirmed by another source but more actual reporting than I've seen in forever)

Give it a read but be warned it's long. And not very flattering for Bush, Cheney or Rumsfeld.
