7. Rummy and 9-11

This is from memory. Fact checks are welcome.

Days prior to 9-11 there was an issue percolating at the Pentagon about the inability to account for a missing ONE TRILLION DOLLARS. (Still considered a large sum of money even today)

Well, after Don heroically helped save many of the Pentagon victims on 9-11, he spoke to Congress in the evening about the urgency of getting his Pentagon Budget Bill passed, because of this hours old war on terror. "C'mon guys, stop dilly-dalleying with our national security and give us canyons full of money to protect America!" And the missing trillion was forgotten to history forever.

Or something close to that.

The gall of these people! Especially when Cheney implied that Richard Clarke was personally responsible for the intelligence failure of 9-11. "He sure missed that one, didn't he?" I think Cheney said. Clarke was running around with his hair on fire begging his boss (or superior in his chain of command?) Condi Rice to start paying attention to the al-Qaeda threat since the day GW was sworn in!

Hypocrites with no shame. Sociopaths don't have much capacity for shame, do they?

Rummy's place in history as the worst Secretary of Defense, since the position was created, is secure. Very secure. A fitting place next to the worst President and VP and Secretary of State and National Security Advisor (twofer for Condi there!) in American History. He is simply a monster. I hope he endorses Romney! Lavishly!
