The cameras were trained on Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld during his testimony before members of Congress last week, but in the wall-to-wall television coverage, one figure was particularly visible in the background: Stephen A. Cambone.

Rumsfeld. Officials at the Pentagon and on Capitol Hill, speaking on condition of anonymity, named a number of potential candidates for the No. 2 Pentagon job. Among them are Navy Secretary Gordon R.

The Pentagon's inspector general said Friday it had begun an investigation into allegations that an office run by Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld's former policy chief, Douglas J. Feith, engaged in illegal or inappropriate intelligence activities before the Iraq war. The probe, which two senators requested two months ago, comes at a contentious point in the political debate over President Bush's decision to invade Iraq and the intelligence upon which Bush based his decision.

Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld approved a plan that brought unconventional interrogation methods to Iraq to gain intelligence about the growing insurgency, ultimately leading to the abuse of Iraqi prisoners, the New Yorker magazine reported Saturday. Rumsfeld gave the green light to methods previously used in Afghanistan for gathering intelligence from members of Al Qaeda, which the United States blames for the Sept. 11 attacks, the magazine reported on its website.

James R. Clapper Jr., the Pentagon's chief official for intelligence, counterintelligence and security matters, has been chosen to become the next director of national intelligence, a position the White House described as the second-toughest in Washington, officials said Friday. If confirmed, Clapper, a retired Air Force general, would succeed Dennis C. Blair, who resigned last month. Clapper was an early favorite for the post, and he would become the fourth director and the third to have a military background.

Who was in charge of Abu Ghraib prison? The nation's top military officials struggled to answer that seemingly simple question in congressional testimony on Friday, with generals launching into arcane explanations of the distinctions between tactical and doctrinal command, and civilian Pentagon leaders seeming unsure who was running the prison when. At one point, Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld basically acknowledged there was no easy answer.

An Iraqi military trailer now in U.S. hands may have been built as a mobile biowarfare laboratory and is the most substantial evidence yet of Saddam Hussein's suspected illegal weapons programs, a senior Pentagon official said Wednesday. Stephen Cambone, undersecretary of Defense for intelligence, said the trailer appears to be "very similar" to the biological-agent production vehicles that Secretary of State Colin L. Powell described to the U.N.

What a wonderful image of democracy and tolerance the Supreme Judicial Court of Massachusetts has presented to the world by allowing same-sex marriages. At a time when elements of the U.S. military machine have perverted homosexual acts into a form of torture, the sight of responsible and joyful gay adults freely choosing the commitment of marriage could not be more timely.
