rumsfeld secret memo to bush

this administration is truly fucked. it's a hell of a hannukah gift! read excerpts from this article.

Rumsfeld Memo Proposed 'Major Adjustment' in Iraq
By MICHAEL R. GORDON and DAVID S. CLOUD, The New York Times

WASHINGTON (Dec. 2) - Two days before he resigned as defense secretary, Donald H. Rumsfeld submitted a classified memo to the White House that acknowledged that the Bush administration's strategy in Iraq was not working and called for a major course correction.

"In my view it is time for a major adjustment," wrote Mr. Rumsfeld, who has been a symbol of a dogged stay-the-course policy. "Clearly, what U.S. forces are currently doing in Iraq is not working well enough or fast enough."

Nor did Mr. Rumsfeld seem confident that the administration would readily develop an effective alternative. To limit the political fallout from shifting course he suggested the administration consider a campaign to lower public expectations.

"Announce that whatever new approach the U.S. decides on, the U.S. is doing so on a trial basis," he wrote. "This will give us the ability to readjust and move to another course, if necessary, and therefore not ‘lose.' "

"Recast the U.S. military mission and the U.S. goals (how we talk about them) - go minimalist." He added.

--
according to iraq body count, 54,000 + citizens have been killed
as of october, 2,ooo + americans & american soldiers have been killed
since september, 1,100 us soldiers have been wounded
grand total: 57,100 HUMAN LIVES have been lost and wounded since the war started

after all of that bloodshed. all of those lives lost. all of the heartbreak and devastation, the desire to save face and minimize the impact to those megalomaniac republican egos still rules out.

un-fucking-believable.

if there is such a thing as god striking a person down and sending them to hell, I truly hope each and every member of the bush administration tops the list.

Fear not! Oh Cunty-One Justice will be served. Though we here in Hell have very little power over punishing the living, we do have our way with the Dead. The plan of the Torturer General, Haxax Carnido, is to stuff Rumsfeld up Bush's ass then shove them both up Ann Coulter's ass then beat the whole thing to a bloody pulp with Rush Limbaugh. All before a cheering crowd of 250, 000 in a stadium constructed solely for this purpose. This act and variations of it will be played out for paying customers three times a day for Eternity.

Good work if you can get it my dear.

Why are you posting this, Katie? Didn't you listen the first time? The mission was accomplished and folks were so gulliable, that Angelides should've flown in on an aircraft carrier.

We never did find those so-called WMDs and this quagmire never did pay for itself.

God-- I want to vomit-- Rummy's parting words were that his worst day as Secretary of Defense was when he learned of the Abu G. goings-on. Puhleeeze-- you know that he ordered this. And some poor dumb motherf*cker from West Virginia is taking the rap for this.

One of my regulars at my restaurant job was Rummy's personal secretary when he was a corporate tool (versus a government tool) in the rich North Shore Chicago suburbs, and says he was every bit the petty dickhead tyrant he appears to be.

My own personal experience in life has taught me that karma is a bitch-- what went around will go around.

you're write, wp, I am such a fucking moron. 100% true.

how do you like cheney's comments about americans of late?

"americans just need to stay out of our way. leave us alone. let us do our jobs."

"the media needs to just stop already. it's nobody's business what we're doing."

that's right, cheney, fuck democracy. those stupid assholic yanks, how dare they ask questions.
