Daily Dose of Irony

From the New York Times vs. PD

"Secreatry of Defense Donald Rumsfeld said Tuesday that critics of the war in Iraq and the campaign against terrorist groups 'seem not to have learned history's lessons' and compared them to those in the 1930's who advocated appeasing Nazi Germany...Comparing terrorist groups toa "new type of facism," Rumsfeld said, 'With the growing lethality and the increasing availability of weapons, can we truly afford to believe that somehow, some way, vicious extremists can be appeased?'...Sen. Jack Reed of Rhode Island, a former Army officer and Democratic member of the Armed Services Committee, responded that 'no one has misread history more than' Rumsfeld. 'It's a political rant to cover up his incompetence...(there are) scores of patriotic Americans of both parties who are highly cirtical of his handling of the D.O.D.'"

Harry Reid goes on to comment "Secretary Rumsfeld's reckless comments show why America is not as safe as it can or should be five years after 9/11."

I myself have no comment, because I don't think I need to say anything. The quotes alone speak volumes. If you want peace, work for justice.
