oh, don

Apparently McNamara II -- er, Donald Rumsfeld -- has seen fit to write a book.
Mr. Rumsfeld condemns what he describes as [L. Paul Bremer III, the civilian director of the American occupation of Iraq]'s heavy-handed, top-down approach and his decision to delay the transfer of authority back to Iraqis. Those actions, he writes, “inadvertently stoked nationalist resentments and fanned the embers of what would become the Iraqi insurgency.”
Interesting theory, Don. I have another -- maybe it was the arbitrary invasion of their country that lit those insurgency fires. But I guess it's just another known unknown, eh?
