** War on Terror
The USA Today has obtained a memo from Donald Rumsfeld to his chief advisors (Wolfowitz, Myers, Pace and Feith) that discusses progress (or lack thereof) in the ongoing War on Terror. As the USA Today discusses in an accompanying article, the tone of the memo is a lot less rosy than the tone taken by the Bush Administration in public statements on this subject.
Analysis: I wonder whether Rumsfeld intentionally leaked this to get some revenge on the Bush team for publicly humiliating him by putting Condi in charge of Iraq.
Update: Looks like I was half right. This wasn't a leak at all -- the Defense Department put this out intentionally.
