Petty, Bush?

Dan Froomkin asks:

David Ignatius writes in his Washington Post opinion column with this fascinating if unsourced assertion:

"The White House had decided in the spring that it was time to make a change at the Pentagon, and officials were steeling themselves to break the news to Rumsfeld when the 'generals' revolt' erupted on newspaper op-ed pages, with former officers lining up to denounce their ex-boss. The White House decided it couldn't appear to bow to pressure and retreated."

Could Bush really be this petty about matters of life and death?

The Answer Man says: "Yes."
