Secretary of Defense has survived Abu Ghraib-gate and Body Armor-gate, so far, but can he go on after the latest Rumsfeld scandal: Rubber Stamp-gate? It seems, the French wire AFP reports that the Sec Def's signature was signed to letters of the families of deceased Iraqi soldiers with an autopen. He did not personally sign the letters.
Rumsfeld told the Stars and Stripes paper that we will sign them individually in the future.
Yes, I'm being facetious with calling everything "-gate," but he ought to have personally signed the letters for the soldiers who personally died in defense of America and America's interests. I don't know why he didn't.
