Rumsfeld: I Haven't Read the Iraq Report

The outgoing defense secretary admitted in an interview that he hadn’t read the Iraq Study Group report — only the executive summary.

Isn’t Bush the one who doesn’t read?

Town Hall:

… CT: You’ve read the Iraq Study Group Report.

DR: I haven’t. I’ve read reports of it and gone through the executive summary.

CT: From what you’ve read, what is the good, the bad and the ridiculous in the ISG Report?

DR: All I’m going to say about it is what the president said. He has cooperated with it; he has met with them (the ISG) and received their recommendations. Every six to eight weeks he meets with a cluster of people. He has listened to the advice and counsel he gets from Generals Abizaid andCasey and the Joint Chiefs of Staff. In the period immediately ahead, he will be making some judgments.
