Rumsfeld Put Creepy Bible Quotes On Military Intelligence Briefings

News

Oh hey has everyone seen thatGQ article by the perpetually awesome Robert Draper about how completely insane the Defense Department went under the crazed leadership of lilliputian despot Donald Rumsfeld? GOOD GOLLY, as Rumsfeld would say.


Let's see, so first and most egregiously, Rumsfeld would hand-deliver these briefing documents to the president during the early days of the war, and the briefs had covers with photos from the war combined with Biblical quotes. So cheesy, right? And the layouts, jesus god, did the Defense Department have not a single queer atheist designer who might have made this shit not look like a PTA newsletter from 1980? Yellow drop-shadows, seriously?

Also: separation of church and state, creepily explicit overtones of the Crusades, Muslims not liking it so much when you make war on them while quoting Jesus, etc. Whatever! Rumsfeld didn't believe any of that shit anyhow! But he knew that 1) Bush would be impressed with Bible quotes all over his war briefings and 2) Bush probably wouldn't read past the cover anyhow, so the cover really had to count.

Ugh. Also, Rumsfeld spent most of his time as Defense Secretary just getting out of doing his homework.

At meetings, he’d throw up every obstacle he could. “Rumsfeld would say, ‘Golly, we haven’t had time to read all of these documents! I mean, this is radical change!’ ” the official adds. “And then, if you suggested that maybe he should’ve read all the documents when everyone first got them a week ago, he’d say: ‘Well! I’ve been all over the world since then! What have you been doing?’ ”

Fucking drama queen. And he was just an awful man in every way, a woman-hating bully, a profound delayer of important action, a shirker of responsibility, and a man who turned everything he touched into shit. In short, he embodied everything terrible about the Bush presidency, and maybe somehow this is Republicans' way of shifting the blame for its horrible failure from the president to the SecDef? DOUCHEBAGS ALL.

Guys! Gals! Non-binaries! Have you gotten around to reading Julia Ioffe's new profile of Donald Trump Jr. in GQ? We have, and it is delicious. Read it for the art alone, which you will have to click over to see for yourself, because we don't want to steal the thunder of this one chap Nigel Buchanan, who drew the most HILARIOUS picture of Dipshit curled up in a ball literally in his dad's shadow. But also read it for the hilarious anecdotes Ioffe tells, of how Junior is a really sucky person whose father doesn't love him! We already kinda knew Daddy has never loved him all that much -- hell, just follow Ashley Feinberg on Twitter, as she chronicles the social media evidence of that each and every day. And we already know he sucks really hard -- like did you hear about how everybody called him Diaper Don in college because of how much he peed on himself all the time, ALLEGEDLY?
