Help Wanted: Rumsfeld Looking to Fill Numerous Key Posts, Including Four of Six on Joint Chiefs

Tampa Bay Online - AP Report

Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld has a number of important leadership posts to fill, including chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, top Navy and Air Force jobs and Rumsfeld's own policy chief.

The changes, all of which require approval by the Senate, will influence the course of the Bush administration's defense policies and the future shape of a military that is under great strain. They also will say a lot about Rumsfeld's vision for transforming the Pentagon bureaucracy.

"Secretary Rumsfeld is gradually putting his stamp on the entire Pentagon in terms of who has power and what ideas prevail," said Loren Thompson, a private analyst who closely watches the Pentagon and the military services.

At the top of the list is Rumsfeld's hunt for a successor to Gen. Richard Myers as chairman of the Joint Chiefs. Myers is due to retire in September, and Rumsfeld also must replace the vice chairman, Gen. Peter Pace, who is considered a leading candidate to move up to the top spot.
