Donald Rumsfeld Blames Bush For Iraq Democracy Fail

Mark Sovel & Elliot Hill | (The Lip TV – Video) | – –

“Donald Rumsfeld said George W. Bush was wrong about Iraq in a recent interview with British newspaper The Times where the former Secretary of Defense called the Bush administration’s efforts to push democracy on Iraq “unrealistic”. In the interview, Rumsfeld, a key player in the decision to invade Iraq following 9/11, also expressed his view that western leaders were not doing enough to combat the growing threat of ISIS. We look at Rumsfeld’s efforts to blame Bush for Iraq War failures on the Lip News with Mark Sovel and Elliot Hill. ”

  1. The problem with these guys is that they’re presenting nothing more than righteous invective: they’re not doing/saying anything to change anyones mind or unmask the truth.

    What they (and others) need to do is stitch together a few succinct, in-your-face videos, which will put the lie to the mealy-mouthed doublespeak we can expect to see much more of as we get into this election cycle.

    The neocons could at one time get away with this sort of thing by insistently repeating their lies. A simple, well-produced 30 second ad (or video) showing what people like Rumsfed said then, and what they’re saying now, could stop them cold.

  2. Both Rumsfeld and Cheney have been powerful incremental insiders with every Republican administration since Nixon.

    Rumsfeld is by far the greatest procurement officer in DoD history and has spent far more taxpayer money on behalf of the MIC than can ever be documented. Including fuels.

    The Cheney NEPDG (National Energy Policy Development Group) spearheaded deregulation which curried that administration with huge favor in the global fossil fuel industry. But they wanted more and got it. Two decade-plus wars which consumed more fuels and lubricants than all previous mechanized wars combined at inflated prices.

    George W. Bush (who is a few cards short of a full deck) was very easy to manipulate. Saddam had threatened his daddy. The two permanent Republican White House fixtures had been reliable for every GOP President since Nixon/Ford because the sitting President of the time kept them reined-in.

    Not so with the Shrub. Until 2006. Too late.

    Look for Rumsfeld to continue his public CYA with a Rove-inspired “reverse Blame Bush” and for Cheney to become even more defiant.

    I mean ya gotta love this country! Where else can a bunch of old guys provide for the looting of our national wealth, engulf regions of the planet in destabilizing wars for a decade or more, kill and displace of innocent millions, totally piss-off a huge portion of the global population, pay back some old favors, ingratiate oneself with your betters and GET AWAY WITH IT!?

    They’re not all old (Obama is not yet 54; BClinton is not yet 69) and they’re not all guys (HClinton, CRice, MAlbright)
