This almost qualifies as a headline of the day. It’s so absurd and goes perfectly with the above Reuters photo during today’s press briefing. I’m waiting for him to get out an organ grinder and monkey (Bush) to deflect attention from all the death and destruction Rummy’s overseen. (AP):
Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld, stung by criticism that he’s insensitive to the needs of the troops and their families, offered his most impassioned defense Wednesday.
The normally stoic Rumsfeld said when he meets wounded soldiers or relatives of those killed in battle, “their grief is something I feel to my core.”
“I am truly saddened by the thought that anyone could have the impression that I, or others here, are doing anything other than working urgently to see that the lives of the fighting men and women are protected and are cared for in every way humanly possible,” he said.
