Bush sets up Rummy who wants lawsuit dismissed, The Judge better be the Judge not History!

Outgoing Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld is asking a federal judge to dismiss a lawsuit that would hold him personally responsible for torture in overseas military prisons because he says History shoud be the judge. Bull! Iraqi American, world citizens should be the Judges!
The lawsuit, filed by two civil rights groups, describes the imprisonment of nine foreigners detained in Iraq and Afghanistan. The lawsuit contends the men were beaten, suspended upside down from the ceiling by chains, urinated on, shocked, sexually humiliated, burned, locked inside boxes and subjected to mock executions.
President Bush has called the abuse of prisoners at Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq the biggest mistake of the war. What? That's wishful thinking!

First, I have to say haven't we heard that the order to do whatever it took to get information came right from Rummy? I read that trying someone of Rummy's position would set a troubling presence. weren't these the idiots that were fond of saying extreme times call for extreme measures. These are extreme times and created by our own misadministration.

These people should be held accountable and Rummy should just be the start. I am blown away first that Bush has the audacity to proclaim the abuse of prisoners at Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq the biggest mistake of the war.

He is setting up Rummy to take the hit for this as he has done for everything in this misadministration in order to appear clean once again while he isn't.

Also with the absolute mess that Iraq is and any idiot should have expected from the get go. With the living hell on earth Bush has created for Iraqi's that will continue to get much worse and spread throughout the middle east despite anyone's belated efforts. I refuse to believe that the chief idiot can be so fucked up as to say prisoner abuse was the biggest mistake of the war. Jesus did anyone keep count? Make a list? That is unbelievable!

Then we have Rummy saying the same crap! In farewell at the Pentagon Rumsfeld said Friday the worst day of his nearly six years as secretary of defense occurred when he learned of the Abu Ghraib prisoner abuse. I thought he gave the okay?

Speaking to a gathering of employees 10 days before he is to leave office Rumsfeld defended his record on Iraq and Afghanistan and warned of "dire consequences were we to fail" in the war. I am dumbfounded! He is concerned now? Yep, someone else wil get the blame, watch.Failure was guaranteed when they stupidly began this!

He also said he might write a book about his tenure at the Pentagon, and he predicted that his successor, Robert Gates, would do a good job. He declined to say what advice he had offered Mr. Gates, who was confirmed by the Senate this week. Hell Gates can do no worse and Rummy is certainly not the one to give advice unless it is to do everything he didn't.

I will close in saying Rummy thinks History will be the Judge as to his performance in Iraq and Afghanistan. I believe the people of Iraq should be the record of measure and the Judge better be the Judge of this. It should also just be the start of accountability!
