Rumsfeld should resign!
Oh, wait. Turns out, he did: "Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld says he twice offered President Bush his resignation during the height of the Abu Ghraib prison abuse scandal, but the president refused to accept it."

Honestly, that doesn't surprise me. And if you've ever read Rumsfeld's Rules, then you shouldn't be surprised either. For example, a rule towards the end of the second section says: "Be able to resign. It will improve your value to the President and do wonders for your performance." And then there's the next one: "If you are lost — 'climb, conserve, and confess.' (U.S. Navy SNJ Flight Manual)"

I highly recommend you read the whole thing.
