"Snowflake" Rumsfeld Is A Little Like Santa

rummmy.jpgAccording to recently released White House memos, former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld felt Muslims were lazy layabouts, Iraq and Iran should be always be mentioned in the same sentence, and the Iraq war could be won through embracing a bumper sticker mentality. Man, does Rummy know how to spin Americans!


Always one for cuddly code names, Rummy called the memos "snowflakes," and he let about 40-60 gently drift down daily upon upon the heads of his staff between 2002 to 2006. And unlike real ephemeral crystalline dendra, where each one is just a little different from the other, Rummy's snowflakes mainly instructed staff on how to shape public opinion and gave hawkish notes of inspiration during wartime: "People will rally to sacrifice," he once wrote. "They are looking for leadership. Sacrifice = Victory." So true, Rummy. So true.

But most revealing, perhaps, is his views that excessive oil wealth has detached Muslims "from the reality of the work, effort and investment that leads to wealth for the rest of the world. Too often Muslims are against physical labor, so they bring in Koreans and Pakistanis while their young people remain unemployed," he wrote. "An unemployed population is easy to recruit to radicalism."

Good Lawd, it's nice to have Rummy back from France!

Fellow Wonkers, this last week of horror has been wearing on us all, because here we are in a world where the "president" of the United States has ordered that migrant children be taken away from their parents at the border, and is simultaneously proud of it (for his base) and cravenly blaming it on Democrats because even he knows it's morally reprehensible. But what the hell can we do about it, we are all keening, beyond calling our senators and representatives and posting sadness on Twitter, the latter of which is of dubious utility to anyone, and mostly depressing?

There are perks to being the only Harvard professor willing to shill for the Bush League Mussolini. Everyone else has to haul ass to the Fox studio and sit for hair and makeup. Not Alan Dershowitz! He just parks his laptop in Pee Wee's playhouse and Skypes in that rant. Is he even wearing pants? We hope never to find out!
