Rumsfeld's Memoir of Evil

Donald Rumsfeld’s Tamiflu profits must have run out because he’s written a memoir of his days of evil presiding over Guantanamo and Abu Ghraib torture.  Of course he has few regrets.

Regrets would require a conscience, and the Bush administration didn’t hire people of conscience.  Conscience was regarded as a weakness.

Senator John McCain (R-AZ) was confronted with some of the nasty snipes Rumsfeld made about him in the book.  McCain took his turn:

Thank God he was relieved of his duties.” (ABC’s Good Morning America)

Other memorable remarks on Rumsfeld from McCain:

We are paying a very heavy price for the mismanagement — that’s the kindest word I can give you — of Donald Rumsfeld, of this war,”

“I think that Donald Rumsfeld will go down in history as one of the worst secretaries of Defense in history.”

Rumsfeld said of McCain’s temperament and character, “a hair-trigger temper and a propensity to fashion and shift his positions to appeal to the media.”

I think Rumsfeld’s most glittering moment of evil is when he announced world wide the name of the soldier who reported the Abu Ghraib scandal.  The young man had to have protective custody and live with his back to the wall for a time. (Source)

  1. Rumsfeld was Bush Sr.’s nemesis in the 80’s. It tells a lot about Dubya’s character. He fucked your father and you name him secretary of Defense.

    • As much as evil can be good for a laugh:

      “Henny Penny.”

      “We do know of certain knowledge that he [Osama Bin Laden] is either in Afghanistan, or in some other country, or dead.

      “We know where they (WMD) are. They’re in the area around Tikrit and Baghdad and east, west, south and north somewhat.”

      “Death has a tendency to encourage a depressing view of war.”

      “Osama Bin Laden is either alive and well or alive and not too well or not alive.”

      “I am not going to give you a number for it because it’s not my business to do intelligent work.”
