Was Pace Being Sarcastic?

Some of you think so:

I'm retired from the military and I read that quote as a jab at Rumsfeld.

A comment like that in front of troops would have caused eyes to roll and maybe a few laughs. The fact that General Pace felt he could make a comment like that about his boss is telling. If Rumsfeld could read that quote and not see the sarcasm, then maybe the SECDEF really believes he is channeling the will of God.

Maybe there's a YouTube and we can tell.
