Louder and Louder -- Soon to be Deafening

Below are links to a collection of editorials from U.S. newspapers that either have called for the resignation of Secretary of Defense Donald H. Rumsfeld or that have raised serious questions about reports of action or inaction by Secretary Rumsfeld and his subordinates related to the ongoing -- and still growing -- controversy about the abuse, humiliation, and degradation of Iraqi prisoners at Abu Ghraib, reports that Secretary Rumsfeld himself today said will soon will expand to encompass “physical violence towards prisoners, acts that can only be described as blatantly sadistic, cruel and inhuman,” according to the New York Times.

Your assistance is needed and requested to keep this project going. If I have missed a similar editorial from your local newspaper -- a newspaper of any size, large, mid-sized, small, or tiny, or from any country -- please send a link to The Rittenhouse Review.
