You’ve gotta be kidding me…

“Former U.S. Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld has no regrets about how the Iraq War was handled, according to leaked portions of his memoir” writes Jonathan Karl at ABC news.

To be fair, later on the article does say he regrets not stepping down after Abu Ghraib and not sending more troops in the first place, although he doesn’t seem to take responsibility for the latter.


  1. I started looking at your list of Categories and clicked in Iraq to see what you had do say. Saw this post and thought to myself that Donald Rumsfeld is one of those people who is incapable of admitting fault or that something he was responsible for could have gone better. So, there’s my thought. And I’m not going to keep going through your old posts. I have this feeling, I’d have a lot more to say. šŸ˜‰

    1. You’re welcome to look around if you like. Though I should say that I might not even remember some of the stuff I’ve written on here, and so may respond “huh, I forgot all about that”. The blog used to be way more political, and I used to be way more libertarian in outlook. The first few years of this blog were basically me trying (very badly) to imitate Andrew Sullivan, who was one of my all-time favorite bloggers.

      1. Ok, so that is truly bizarre. I could have written that last sentence about myself and my blog. I wanted to have a blog that was a whole lot of everything, including a lot on politics. Much like Sullivan. Hard to do that when you have a full-time job. This past year has made it difficult to write about politics.

        1. Yes; it was tough to blog about current events every day, even back in the days of “normal” American politics.

          This past year–or really ever since Trump declared his candidacy–make it almost impossible. It’s a never-ending slew of mostly bad news.

What's your stake in this, cowboy?
