HeadingLeft scoops A.P. by nearly a week

Daily Kos ran a story on the front page featuring an AP report released today.

A little-noticed holiday week executive order from President Bush moved the Pentagon's intelligence chief to the No. 3 spot in the succession hierarchy behind Mr. Rumsfeld. The second spot would be the deputy secretary of defense, but that position currently is vacant. The Army chief, which long held the No. 3 spot, was dropped to sixth.

The changes, announced last week, are the second in six months and mirror the administration's new emphasis on intelligence gathering versus combat in 21st century warfighting.

Maybe time just moves slower when you are sitting in the White House Press Room. I wonder how long it will take the Associated Press to figure out what this signals about Rumsfeld's tenure, and then how long it will take them to realize that the President is holding the announcement so they can dangle appointments at the negotiations to replace Tom Delay, and as a distraction for the next bad news cycle.

Oh wait, they will never get it. With pawns like them, even Rove and Bush can look like chess masters.
