Donald Rumsfeld Calls Out President BlameBush On Afghanistan

This is extraordinary:
Former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld on Wednesday lashed out at President Obama for claiming the Bush administration rebuffed commanders' repeated requests for more troops in Afghanistan.

In a rare break in his public silence since leaving the Pentagon, Rumsfeld rejected the claim as a "bald misstatement" and "disservice" that cannot go unanswered.

"Such a bald misstatement, at least as it pertains to the period I served as secretary of defense, deserves a response," Rumsfeld said in a written statement. "I am not aware of a single request of that nature between 2001 and 2006."

The president leveled the charge in his speech Tuesday night outlining his plan to send 30,000 more U.S. troops into Afghanistan.

Remember back when a hip young prez upchucked on his bib accusing the Cambridge Police of "acting stupidly"? It was, in Obama's words, a teachable moment that taught us Obama is a weasel.

This is worse. Much, much worse. This is the President of the United States defaming his predecessor and that man's Secretary of Defense, and Donald Rumsfeld should take this narcissistic child to the f'ing woodshed in front of the entire nation.
