Rumsfeld to Diane Sawyer: 'It's Possible' Troop Decisions Were a Mistake in Iraq
http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/donald-rumsfeld-diane-sa... <snip> More than four years after leaving public life, former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld continues to believe the war in Iraq was worth the effort, and has no apologies for his decision-making in leading the campaigns in Afghanistan and Iraq.
In an exclusive interview with ABC's Diane Sawyer, Rumsfeld concedes that "it's possible" that decisions on how many troops to send into Iraq marked the biggest mistake of the war.
"In a war, many things cost lives," Rumsfeld told Sawyer.
Pressed on the fact that President Bush has written that cutting troop levels in Iraq was "the most important failure in the execution of the war," Rumsfeld called that "interesting." ------------ You know what - I can't wait until the gang destroy one another as each one blames the other. sp.
3. The number of troops is not the issue, the war was wrong,
it was based on so many lies, to list them all you'd have to write a book. But a lot of people made a lot of money and we have lots of bases over their guarding 'OUR' oil that the Iraqis had the audicity to be be sitting on.
Why don't they just go away? What's with them reminding us constantly of the crimes they committed? Don't they have enough money without trying to profit from the blood they have on their hands?
Shameless criminals and living in a country where they know there will be no consequences for them.
6. He keeps saying how everybody believed there were wmds.
But never acknowledges that Scott Ritter was being very loud and public about how they can't have them. Of course that was not the message they wanted to hear and tried to kill the messenger. And tried to kill Valerie Plame and Joe Wilson too (hopefully not literally).
16. Mistake? That is what guilty felons always tell the judge when...
...caught red handed. Then the judge does the obligatory correction informing the self serving remorseless psychopath of the difference between a "mistake" and intentional criminal actions. It is in the course of such a discourse that you realize that the criminal's mendacity warrants no mitigation of the just punishment he deserves.
