Trouble in paradise?

* “Rumsfeld Says Guantánamo Isn't Being Considered For Closing,” New York Times, June 9, 2005

versus

* “Guantanamo Bay Prison Could Close, Bush Hints,” Washington Post, June 9, 2005

God, I hope this means Rumsfeld's on the way out. I read in another article earlier this week of a tussle between Condoleeza Rice and the Pentagon over North Korea, where an unidentified defense official claimed that the United States was getting ready to dump the whole nuclear North Korea situation in the laps of the UN Security Council, and she came out, dukes up, responding that was "forward-leaning" and that "we still believe that there is life left in the six-party talks."

Given how much influence Rice is supposed to have over Bush, and the increasing distress the American public is (finally) showing over the morass in Iraq, maybe this means that Rumsfeld is returning to his position of the summer of 2001 as the administration's problem child.
