Rumsfeld in a drawer

When I was a judicial clerk, we used a stamp of the judge's signature on certain routine orders. We called it "judge in a drawer."

It turns out, the Defense Department has been sending out condolence letters to the families of dead soldiers using a "Rumsfeld in a drawer."

Now, this isn't a substantive reason to fire the guy, but it is additional evidence to me that he is not the best friend of the guys on the frontlines.

UPDATE:

Quote: "This issue of a secretary of Defense not personally signing these letters is just astounding to me and it does reflect how out of touch they are and how dismissive they are."-- Sen. Chuck Hagel (R-NE).
