Rumsfield on Wiki
there was also criticism about his use of an Autopen signature machine to sign the condolence letters to the families of the soldiers killed in Iraq
and Afghanistan rather than signing the letters.
Well that is rumsfields approach and attitiude to the families of these guys...hes too busy or important to sign the letters himself. I think that
though the reality of transporting these bodies is often not how we liked...whilst still being practical and logisticaly realistic, we should I feel
be on gaurd for possible more systematic disrespect on this issue as a whole from the administration... At the end of the day for these dead soldiers
it is now pretty much accepted that they sent this soldiers to war based on lies... so that is the ultimate insult...how does it really matter how
their bodies come back after that?
Wrapping a flag on the coffin of a 20 yr old who died believing he was protecting the US from nasty weapons...aint going to change anything.
Just some thoughts...no disrespect meant, intended or noticed when checked it!
Well my favourite quote of Rumsfield below the only thing hes done that I like!
"Reports that say that something hasn't happened are always interesting to me, because as we know, there are known knowns; there are things we know
we know. We also know there are known unknowns; that is to say we know there are some things we do not know. But there are also unknown unknowns - the
ones we don't know we don't know." (February 12, 2002)
