Greatscat filled me in. "Rumsfeld is violating the law passed by Congress last October by not reimbursing troops who have to purchase their own body armor and other supplies?"

Paul Rieckhoff has a lenghty post explaining what happened to him which includes a shocking video: "We as Troops don’t “go to war with the Army we have.” We go to war with the Army we are given by Rumsfeld. He and his DOD bureaucrats have failed our Troops on"

Can you help us out?
