“…on the afternoon of November 8, 2006, President Bush removed Donald Rumsfeld from his position as Secretary of Defense. ‘The timing is right for new leadership at the Pentagon,’ the President said in making the announcement. Donald Rumsfeld had been in his position for five years and ten months. He was George W. Bush’s longest-serving original cabinet member.”
