Rumsfeld is lucky he's not in prison.

I hope more Bush era members make appearances, voters need to be reminded of the FAIL that a Republican administration will bring.
 
2012-10-03 04:44:27 PM  
Well, I would consider him an authority on getting bad intelligence and acting on it.

At least McNamara had the decency to admit his farkups.

I think it's embarrassing that Rumsfeld isn't in prison getting pounded in the ass by a fat black serial rapist who think he's the real Oprah.

30 years after the act, but okay.

My God, he didn't jump to conclusions and invade Iraq! That's borderline criminal.

Do even the most fervent of Republicans think Rumsfeld should be listened to?

Obama should just film Rumsfeld talking for 60 seconds and use that as his campaign ad.

This guy said the Iraqi resistance wouldn't last six months. Sounds legit.

I think it's embarrassing to be Secretary of Defense of the USA on the morning of 9-11 and not be aware you're country was under attack until the building you were sitting in was hit by an airplane.

so go fark yourself you pretentious old windbag
 
2012-10-03 04:51:59 PM  
What's embarrassing is this shiat heel thinking he has any credibility to comment on foreign policy.

Guess he's getting ready to hit the lecture circuit to get large sums of money to tell retards what the want to hear.

If Rumsfeld ever gets tried at the Hague and found guilty, I want an MP3 of him begging for his life followed by the sound of his neck snapping on the gallows.

If you're a Republican in 2012, there's something wrong with you. That statement becomes less hyperbolic every day.
 
2012-10-03 05:02:40 PM  
If I were Rumsfeld (or Feith or Wolfowitz or Cheney or any of the main and supporting actors in the Bush Administration), I'd thank God every day that I wasn't in jail or strung up on a lamp post somewhere for the lies I told in getting America into a useless war that has costs thousands of lives, trillions of dollars, and who knows how much prestige. The last f*ckin' thing I'd do is think that anyone gave a damn about what came out of my mouth in regards to foreign policy.
 
2012-10-03 05:04:20 PM  
I bet that motherfarker said that shiat with a straight face too. Jesus Christ.

Maybe they should check the area around Tikrit and Baghdad and east, west, south and north somewhat.

What dumbasses would listen to anything Bush's National Insecurity team had to say?

Without any hint of irony, Rumsfeld said last night on Fox News...

Oh, never mind.

"You go to war with the army you have---not the army you might want or wish to have at a later time."

Or you use the intelligence you have at the time not the intelligence you might want or wish to have at a later time?

Romney's senior advisor, Vin Weber, leading contender to become White House Chief of Staff if Romney wins, was one of the authors, with Cheney and Rumsfeld, of the PNAC letter urging Clinton to attack Iraq.

That's who listens to him, Romney does.

And, you know, the thing about a shark... he's got lifeless eyes. Black eyes. Like a doll's eyes. When he comes at ya, doesn't seem to be living... until he bites ya, and those black eyes roll over white and then... ah then you hear that terrible high-pitched screamin'. The ocean turns red, and despite all the poundin' and the hollerin', they all come in and they... rip you to pieces.

meh... he waited until he's almost dead.

I'd be happy if rumsfeld did that...Provided the admission happens tomorrow...

Good point. Let's not forget other Bush era luminaries on Mitt's team such as foreign policy adviser John Bolton.

You go to war with countries unrelated to 9/11 with the fabricated intelligence you have.

Rumsfeld...Rumsfeld...why is that name familiar?

WASHINGTON, July 7 - A secret military operation in early 2005 to capture senior members of Al Qaeda in Pakistan's tribal areas was aborted at the last minute after top Bush administration officials decided it was too risky and could jeopardize relations with Pakistan, according to intelligence and military officials.

The target was a meeting of Qaeda leaders that intelligence officials thought included Ayman al-Zawahri, Osama bin Laden's top deputy and the man believed to run the terrorist group's operations.

But the mission was called off after Donald H. Rumsfeld, then the defense secretary, rejected an 11th-hour appeal by Porter J. Goss, then the director of the Central Intelligence Agency, officials said. Members of a Navy Seals unit in parachute gear had already boarded C-130 cargo planes in Afghanistan when the mission was canceled, said a former senior intelligence official involved in the planning.


Eat a bag o' dicks, Don.

What's embarrassing is that the Libyan embassy requested increased security....was denied....was attacked with loss of life..and then the administration blamed it all on a crappy youtube movie trailer.

Even if it is coming from Rumsfeld...This whole thing is really farked up.

You have it backwards, Rush Limbaugh listener. They warned the ambassador and he denied more security.
