    Republican: fire Rumsfeld, "Shinseki has been proven right"

    The Daily Press: "I've made no bones about it the last two years," Davis told members of the Hampton Roads Chapter of the American Society of Military Comptrollers on Thursday. "He's probably a nice guy, but I don't think he's a great secretary of defense."

    Later she amended her "nice guy" assessment by saying Rumsfeld had come across as arrogant in her dealings with him, which stretch back to committee work during her freshman term in Congress, in 2001.

    ...she added, "I think if he had listened to Gen. (Eric) Shinseki in the beginning - I think Gen. Shinseki has been proven right. His argument with Secretary Rumsfeld was that we needed to have more troops, and he's right in my opinion."

    In 2003, before the war started, Shinseki, then the Army chief of staff, said he believed that hundreds of thousands of U.S. troops would be needed there during the postwar period.

    On Aug. 1 of that year, Rumsfeld fired him.
