Combat Operations
The same day Rumsfeld announced it was over in Afghanistan, President Bush, in a May 1, 2003 televised speech from a U.S. aircraft carrier off the coast of California, announced that 'major combat operations' in Iraq have ended. Except for the continued killing of civilians, and moving from innocent women and children to uneducated protestors, who think liberation means free speech, not free artifacts, looted from unguarded museums. The wars, however, continue.
Shock and Awe
As the realities of the Bomb Now, Plan Later campaign come home to roost, DOnald Rumsfeld has become the crusty old American version of former Iraqi Information Minister, Mohammed Saeed al-Sahaf, insisting that the rampant looting, as clear as the falling statues, is a media exaggeration. -- April 14, 2003
Look Away
Back in February 2002 Donald Rumsfeld disbanded the Defense Advisory Committee on Women in the Services (DACOWITS), the only entity that provided a modicum of oversight to the rampant sexual harassment in the military, as the Air Force assaulted and raped female servicemembers with abandon. The same females that were flying airplanes and dropping leaflets over Afghanistan, decrying the Talibanís treatment of women.
Diamante and Perle
On March 27, 2003, Richard N. Perle resigned as chairman of an influential Pentagon advisory board following disclosures of business dealings that included his meeting with a Saudi arms dealer and a contract with a bankrupt telecommunications company seeking Defense Department permission to be sold to Chinese investors. He does, however, remain on the board. He also advised that "taking out" Iraq would be a breeze. Would you hire him?
