The soldier read the TelePrompTer?

So, an embedded Tennessee reporter PrompTed that soldier to ask Rummy about armor? What does this mean?

That a soldier stood up in front of all is buddies and his commanding officer and asked the Secretary of Defense a rude question--risking his Specialist rank as a member, not of a stamp collecting club, but of an army, ferGodsake--only because some reporter told him to? I don't think so. We have a problem, Washington, and not just with Humvee armor, and we'd damn well better fix it, now.

Afterthought: Griping is a basic military skill. Getting to gripe to the military boss with cameras rolling...priceless.
