It's their fault

Rumsfeld: War Critics Being Manipulated By Zarqawi and Bin Laden’s ‘Media Committees’

Yesterday on Rush Limbaugh, embattled Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld said that those who criticize the Iraq war are being manipulated by terrorists, including Zarqawi and bin Laden, through the U.S. media:

There have always been people who have opposed wars…I think we just have to accept it, that people have a right to say what they want to say, and to have an acceptance of that and recognize that the terrorists, Zarqawi and bin Laden and Zawahiri, those people have media committees.

They are actively out there trying to manipulate the press in the United States. They are very good at it.

So, according to Rumsfeld, the media isn’t just failing to report the “good news” from Iraq, it is being actively manipulated by terrorists. Those that are critical of the war are simply buying into the propaganda.

The only way to circumvent the terrorist-influenced U.S. media, apparently, is to listen to Rush Limbaugh.

So the generals, divisions commanders, are manipulated by Iraqi guerrilas and Al Qaeda?

God, we are going to face a bloodbath in Iraq and then they can no longer deny the truth. Their attitude is going to force this tragedy on all of us.

They don't know what the fuck to do in Iraq and the Iraqis know it.
