Rumsfeld Whopper: I Was Never Overly Optimistic About Iraq
Posted on Aug 3, 2006
Testifying before Congress today, Donald Rumsfeld said he has never painted a rosy picture about Iraq, and that you would have a dickens of a time trying to find instances where I have been overly optimistic. (video)
That’s just nonsense. How about this quote from a speech Rumsfeld delivered at Johns Hopkins on Dec. 5, in which he slammed the U.S. press for being overly negative in its Iraq reporting.
A vastly different path? The Baghdad morgue received 1,595 bodies last month. Last month! And that’s up 16% over May.
