Durbin says America needs new leadership at the Pentagon because the situation in Iraq "has gone from bad to terrible."

Durbin is the second-highest ranking Democrat in the Senate. He says the Senate should take a "no confidence" vote on Rumsfeld when lawmakers return to Washington next week.

Durbin's remarks come after six retired generals have criticized Rumsfeld's handling of the Iraq war.

Durbin says their criticism should serve as a wake-up call for Congress.
