Much as I hate to agree with Dumsfeld, I’ve been puzzled by the frank discussions with what we may do to Syria. Now, Dumsfeld cooked the books for Iraq, too, but he does make some valid points.
Acknowledging it was difficult to fully ascertain the administration’s thinking as an outsider, Rumsfeld maintained it was puzzling the amount of information that’s made its way to the public.
“The idea of demystifying for the enemy what you’re going to do is mindless,” he said.
I’ve long-held that he should be tried on war crimes, but that’s not going to happen.
And just when I think ol’ Dummy is reformed, he comes out with this:
“This administration has been in a withdrawal mode, an apology mode,” he said, adding: “That vacuum we’ve created is being filled by people that don’t have our values or interests.”
Umm, yeah. We had to pull out of the messes you put us in, Dummy.
