Shut up Rumsfeld you COCK!

You can't un-catapult the propaganda.

fusillade762: Marcus Aurelius: We've got you on tape, Rummy, for future generations to mock.

I'm having trouble finding a direct quote by him. Best I could find (but the footnote links are both dead).

The article continued, "Officials said Rumsfeld's statement [26 September, that the U.S. government has "bulletproof" confirmation of links between Iraq and al-Qaida members, including "solid evidence" that members of the terrorist network maintain a presence in Iraq] was based in part on intercepted telephone calls


FWIW, the headline says that Rumsfeld stated that the Bush administration made no such claims of a link, not that Rumsfeld didn't make any claims personally (yes, I know that you were responding the Marcus's claim about Rumsfeld).

Anyway, there's a whole Wikipedia page dedicated the Bush administrations claims of an Iraq/Al-Qaeda link.

The Fog of War is an endlessly fascinating documentary. Say what you will about Robert MacNamara and his actions surrounding Vietnam; he at least conceded that there were things to be learned from his experience and the experience of others. Maybe it was remorse, maybe it was regret, but he was willing to take a sober second look at what happened.


Donald Rumsfeld, in the wake of the worst foreign policy clusterf*ck in a generation, continues to sit there and lie, outright lie, like an absolute sack of sh*t.

Mr. Rumsfeld, you are a truly terrible human being.

I guess since no one else will say anything nice about Rumsfeld it falls to me.

When Donald Rumsfeld dies it will back the world a better place.

The Fog of War is one of my favorite movies, and this Rumsfeld one sounds like The Fog of War Minus Any Human Empathy or Remorse.

I'll watch it. I'll feel horrible watching it, but I'll watch it.
 
2014-04-02 08:02:53 PM
Wow, Donald Rumsfeld has a problem understanding reality!  Hold the presses.

Every person who voted for that crew is personally responsible for every American death in that idiotic war and responsible for every dollar of the trillions that will have been spent there.

Additionally, the Democrats are almost as responsible for that fiasco for putting that 'tard Kerry against Bush.

I never really paid attention to politics until the lead-up to the Iraq invasion. It was the fervor with which people called others "traitors" and "un-American" when they questioned the motives/validity of war with Iraq. Even if folks didn't vote for that crew, anybody who employed the bully tactics I saw is culpable.

Everyone involved in any way with the Project for a New American Century should be lined up against a wall and shot for High Treason.

The black stain that Rumsfeld and the rest of the Bush administration left on America for authorizing and ordering the use of torture can never be fully wiped clean.
 
2014-04-02 08:20:52 PM
Donald Rumsfeld is either an idiot or evil (or both).

Honestly, when I've seen him talk or try to explain his positions, he's always come across as a bumbling incompetent, so I'm going with idiot.

I thought it was the absolute dumbest batshiat stupid exercise of futility america had ever engaged in

even the bay of pigs made more sense. grenada made more sense, for chrissakes.

it was just bone-headed ignorance and a bunch of dumb whoop whoop from the cheerleading masses and it made me realize something that I'd been trying to avoid coming to terms with most of my adult life: damn americans are a bunch of dumb motherfarkers.

No. They should not be shot. If this were truly a just world they would be in prison and live long enough to see their names become as synonymous with betrayal of this nation as Benedict Arnold.

people who start unnecessary wars should be the first to serve in combat.

davynelson: people who start unnecessary wars should be the first to serve in combat.


Wars should be put to a popular vote and those who vote yes should be first in line to be conscripted.

Well, he never ACTUALLY said in so many words "Saddam Hussein USA allied with al-Qaeda" so that means if anyone was confused, that's their fault, not his.

Hey, if it was good enough for Nixon...

At the time, Rumsfeld was also overheard saying, "dammit, I thought we rewrote all the websites and history books years ago! Foiled again!!"  He then shook a tiny fist and went back to his luxurious retirement sitting atop a throne made entirely of human skulls, mostly Marines killed in 2004 Iraq.

Yeah, I liked it just the way it was. I remember seeing a lot of early reviews saying they were disappointed Errol Morris didn't really capitalize on and hammer him in questioning on some potential gotcha zingers...but, McNamara did a pretty good hanging himself on a few things.

2014-04-02 08:48:05 PM
Yeah, Rumsfeld and the rightwing wackos will never convince ME that they didn't link Saddam and 9/11 during the runup to the war.

Every rightwinger I argued with not only believed that passionately, they also called me crazy to suggest otherwise.

Many of those arguments were right here on Fark. You can enjoy the wackos' Saddam-911 arguments just by doing a Fark search to 2002/3.
