Most Americans now believe the war with Iraq was not worth fighting and more than half want to fire embattled Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, the chief architect of that conflict, according to a Washington Post-ABC News poll.
The survey found that 56 percent of the country now believes that the cost of the conflict in Iraq outweighs the benefits, while 42 percent disagreed. It marked the first time since the war began that a clear majority of Americans have judged the war to have been a mistake
Barely a third of the country approves of the job that Rumsfeld is doing as defense secretary, and 52 percent said President Bush should sack Rumsfeld, a view shared by a big majority of Democrats and political independents.
Still, nearly six in 10 -- 58 percent -- said the United States should keep its military forces in Iraq rather than withdraw them, a proportion that has not changed in seven months.

Ah, well, now for the response that some people who assume I'm a Bush supporter and an Iraq War supporter have been waiting for...
When the Iraq War first started, I was all for it. I was even pro-Bush, despite the fact I hated his domestic policy, I could at least take comfort in the thought that our nation was well protected, or was at least getting vengeance for 9/11. I assumed, like most people, that the administration knew what they were doing, and that we wouldn't violate the Geneva Convention by invading Iraq without a reason.
