I love Sundays. You get talking heads on Sundays. Here’s Secretary Rumsfeld on that 87 billion dollars.
“On the other hand, if you cast it [$87 billion dollars kplzthx] directly, that the $87 billion is part of the global war on terror, and that it is a lot better to be fighting terrorists in Iraq and Afghanistan than it is in the United States, and that the effort is one that has not as its purpose, I think, as you phrased it, rebuilding Iraq. Iraqis are going to have to rebuild Iraq.”
Well, yeah, it’s better to be fighting terrorists in Iraq if you don’t happen to be an Iraqi. Sorry about chosing your country as our battlefield against Al Qaeda, guys. And you can just rebuild your own country, cause that 87 billion is battlefield money.
Mind you, this is not what the President said. Someone’s getting way too far off message!
