Are you shitting me????

Donald Rumsfeld interviewed by Bill O'Reilly....says of Hamid Karzai:
"The criticisms of Karzai, I think, have been misplaced... He's been elected leader of that country...I have seen no indication that he's corrupt and I think the way he's been savaged... He's the president of that country. We want him to succeed."

I can't even come up with a witty way of saying batshit crazy......


  1. Well, to be fair, it would be really great if Karzai were the perfect Boy Scout, and had the diplomatic skills and absolute fairness to pull disparate factions together and inspire them to craft a better future for Iraq. So, yeah: "We want him to succeed."

    Over in the other corner, weighing in with the mass of the entire world, we have Reality.

  2. And eventually at least....reality always trumps rhetoric.

  3. We are talking about Rumsfeld, remember.

    He's one of the crew that "manufactures" reality, so, if he says it, it becomes so.

  4. go to war with the reality you have, not the reality you wish you had?

  5. Yeah, sump'm like that... you know, easy, cheap, we'll be hailed as lberators...?
