10. 7, actually.

"If I were president, I wouldn't have appointed Don Rumsfeld. I wouldn't have picked him to be the secretary of defense because I worked around him... He wasn't up to speed on the way the world had changed since the end of the Cold War. He was still in pursuit of enemies." -Wes Clark 11/19/03

"I think it would be very patriotic if Secretary Rumsfeld resigned." -Wes Clark 5/9/04 /

"The Presidents never listened to the people in the field. Hes listened to Rumsfeld who has assured him that he knew what the people in the field were saying. But what hes done is hes intimidated a lot of people in the field fromthey know what the required answer is and a lot of them trim their sails when they talk to Rumsfeld. They know what the consequences will be if they tell it to him straight and, of course Rumsfeld plays on that. He makes them think theyre worry-warts. He makes them think they dont have confidence in themselves. He pushes on them, gets them to say what he wants them to say. Hes a master at it." -Wes Clark, 3/21/06

Is Rummy more interested what is in the best interest of the country and the armed forces, or what is in the best interest of Rummy? I think it's a valid question at this point for master of lies.
