Rummy Goes There: Donald Rumsfeld Shows his Colors




Remember back in the heady days of 2002, when everybody thought Donald Rumsfeld was a hunka-hunka burnin' old guy, with his vacant aphorisms and his abysmal ignorance of everything for which he was supposed to be responsible. I mean, there were people getting positively moist over the wrinkly mastermind.

Turns out he's just as much of a soulless, greasy creep as the rest of them were.

Speaking on Fox News, Rumsfeld slammed President Barack Obama over his failure to secure a status of forces agreement with outgoing Afghan President Hamid Karzai that would allow US military forces to remain in Afghanistan beyond 2014. "A trained ape could get a status of forces agreement," Rumsfeld said on Monday, noting that the US had similar arrangements with more than 100 other countries.

Under Donald Rumsfeld's leadership, you may recall, the United States went to two wars with inadequate preparation, and one of them was purely based on lies. He had something cute to say about that. The Afghanistan part of the equation was swiftly forgotten, but not before Rumsfeld's Pentagon had blown a chance to get a hold of Osama bin Laden at Tora Bora. Resources were shifted over to Iraq. He had something cute to say about that, too. Almost 5000 Americans, and hundreds of thousands of Iraqis have died. ISIS was born. And now Donald Rumsfeld, who couldn't manage a toy boat in a washtub, gets to say something cute about the president.

Also, it's not About Race because it never is About Race.

7. Rummy tried to flirt with my MIL in the early 1960's in front of my FIL

 

sadly, my FIL did not bust him in the fucking mouth...but he really, really wanted to.

Had Gil landed a good punch the world might be a better place today.

8. Good point, had he and W and Cheney and Limbaugh and Perle and Wolfowitz and others

been forced to fight in Vietnam, most or all would have been killed either by the enemy or their own men and we would not be suffering with them today.

CHICKENSHIT CHICKENHAWKS have a way of avoiding doing their duty while DEMANDING others do.

Why isn't Rummy standing trial for war crimes?

keep those "jungle" comments going, so everyone can see just hatefully racist the RWers are. Such disrespect for a sitting POTUS -- how shameful!!! But I keep forgetting that RWers can never be embarrassed because they have no shame.

22. When Rumsferatu disrespects a President elected and re-elected by a majority of Americans, he is

 

disrespecting the American people who elected that President and the principles of a democratic republic. Typical fascist bullshit.

9. He is as unrepentent as the rest of the gang

 

Rice, Cheney and Rumsfeld. All are just like unrepentant Nazis after World War 2, still insisting that they did the right thing.

25. AFAIK, Albert Speer is the only high-ranking Nazi to express any remorse or

 

confess that he had erred. And Speer's 'remorse' and 'confession of error' always struck me as a bit opportunistic. Those who were truly remorseful died in the aftermath of Stauffenberg's plot.

11. Doesn't Rumsfeld (and Charles M. Pierce) realize that we haven't

ended the war in Afghanistan? What would be the point of a status of forces of agreement when the war is ongoing?

13. I do not recall the time when 'everybody' loved Rumsfeld, I recall hating his guts through a few

 

administrations myself. I'm not at all surprised, Rummy was a Nixon/Cheney guy. That lost of Republicans was always hugely bigoted. Not sure why anyone is surprised by this. It's disgusting, but it is not surprising at all.

26. As grating as his affectations were, the way the press constantly fellated RummyDummy pissed

 

me off even more. How many here remember that Reagan sent Rumsferatu on a secret mission to Baghdad in 1983 to re-establish diplomatic relations with the Great Satan himself? Agree 100% with you: disgusting but hardly surprising.

Just so the young-uns here don't think you and I are going CT:

28. Obama can't be seen or perceived to be doing it himself (the 'angry black man' syndrome, blah-

 

-blah-blah). But he could direct Holder to name a Special Prosecutor (which should have been done on Jan. 21, 2009, imo).

24. Rumsfeld is evil down to his DNA.

And the Status of Forces agreement was signed by Dubya before Obama was even elected. He's a lying bag of rat shit. Burial in a toxic waste dump would afford him more honor than he deserves.
