Rumsfeld's a dork
when he's defensive. and did you know he stands for eight hours a day at work? he offered that as justification for using forced standing for torture!
Weird how this story doesn't seem that big a deal to me (the outspoken generals, not the torture! that story is so last week) . . why did i just now realized i'm not as shocked as i should be . . . must be the torture (hard to beat, that one).
by the way, he compares his pressing for the war to disagreeing over a tank design. only pattern i see there is that he puts way too much energy into thinking about killing people.
