"I suppose they would have been calling General Eisenhower back for congressional hearings" 

The SecDef hit the nail on the head with this one folks. In this world of instant news and satellite communication, if the Normandy landing took place today vice 60 years ago, you can bet your sweet ass that some douchebag like Michael Moore would scream about how the whole war was fictional. Hell, Patton's whole First U.S. Army Group was nothing but radio traffic and inflatable tanks! That's proof that Americans are liars, isn't it?

Anyway, check out the rest of what Rumsfeld had to say and go to defendamerica.mil if you want a clearer picture of what's going on in the world right now.

The good Lord willing, we'll never face another Normandy. But make no mistake about it, we are in a world war right now. What will the history books say about Iraq in 2064? If the past is any indicator, what the press is saying today will be long forgotten (hint hint... read the second post down from this one).
