“Why do we soldiers have to dig through local landfills for pieces of scrap metal and compromised ballistic glass to up-armor our vehicles?”

- Reporter Edward Lee Pitts through Spc. Thomas Wilson, to SecDef Donald Rumsfeld.

Froggy Ruminations comments a little about the media Rumsfeld set-up, but more importantly provides us with a great military anecdote. I have never seen a general do a mass question/answer session. They do tend to get amongst the troops to find out what's important to them, but usually they visit smaller groups while they work. Certainly nothing the cameras would be interested in.
