Donald Rumsfeld was always good with the zingers, and now he’s back.  I just got done watching an interview with him on CNN.  Just as I was done picking my jaw up off the floor at the guy having the nerve to critique someone else’s *war-making decisions*, he made it drop again.  When the interviewer asked about the faulty intelligence leading to the Iraq war, Rumsfeld responded with “You know if intelligence were a fact, it would be called a fact, and not intelligence.”

Sounds like we’re back in “there are known knowns and unknown unknowns” territory.  Conservatives like to claim that they have the facts on their side, while liberals only have emotion.  Well, sure…easy to say that you have the facts on your side when you can interpret those facts so broadly and also include dubious “intelligence” in your arsenal.
