That the Bush administration has very little idea about what to do was made clear by the news -- printed in bold across the front pages of the morning's 'Washington Post' and the 'New York Times' -- that Bush had ''privately'' scolded Rumsfeld for not warning him about the photographs before they were broadcast.
But Rumsfeld, an experienced bureaucratic infighter, was not entirely defenseless. Without quoting a source, the 'Los Angeles Times' reported a few hours after the 'Post' went to press that Rumsfeld was informed about abuses at Abu Ghraib in January and personally told Bush about them shortly thereafter.
