Rummy

Does anyone else think that Donald Rumsfeld is starting to sound like the former propaganda minister (or whatever he was officially minster of) of Iraq, who during the brief war, kept spouting off about how Iraq was winning and crushing the US, etc? Just these blatant, pathetic lies in the facing of menacing, inevitable truth?

Here’s my prediction: Dubya’s handler’s sense this about Rummy, and know that he’ll be a negative in the upcoming election. Thus, in the aftermath of the forthcoming inquiry, (or perhaps early on, as that’s not likely to be resolved before this November, particularly if it really is being modeled after The Warren Commission), Rumsfeld will be the fallguy, and that will help distance Dubya from the intelligence cock-up, and he can still be the good guy.

  1. The link in your post is to an article about CIA director George Tenet, with hardly a mention of Rummy. Looks like Tenet is the planned scapegoat, being head of intelligence, and appointed by Bill Clinton and all.

    By blaming bad intelligence for the invasion, Bush avoid responsibilty and replace a Clinton-appointed director of the CIA at the same time. Rummy seems an unlikely scapegoat

  3. Whoa. That’s weird. When I posted this, It was a link to Rumsfeld saying it was too soon to tell that there were no WMDs in Iraq, responding to the Kay report. I guess MSNBC recycles their story IDs or something.
