Rummy: First thing we do -- Keep out all the Lawyers Compare and contrast and think about the implications all the way to the top: Pentagon officials rejected an Army plan last year to send an experienced military lawyer - who is also a Republican member of Congress - to help oversee the unit blamed for prisoner abuse at the Abu Ghraib complex outside Baghdad. That left the prison complex, which holds up to 7,000 Iraqis, without an onsite lawyer to guide interrogations and treatment of prisoners... The rejected lawyer, Rep. Steve Buyer, R-Ind., and other experts say having had a lawyer at the prison might have prevented or at least mitigated the beatings, sexual humiliation and other abuse detailed in photographs and the Army probe. Hmm, what are Rummy's opinions on Lawyers? Reduce the number of lawyers. They are like beavers -- they get in the middle of the stream and dam it up.
