Rumsfeld: "I'm a smacked horse's ass."

ABOARD THE USS O'BANNON (Reuters) - Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld told sailors on a destroyer off the French coast on Wednesday to expect a "bumpy road" in Iraq as he prepared to press NATO allies to do more to train Iraqi forces.

Haven't they been saying this for, like, two years now?

Aw, the hell with it. I was going to post some great words from Rumsfeld confidante Ken Adelman, but you really have to read the entire article from Adelman on how these guys thought Iraq was going to be a cakewalk. You have to read Adelman's description of "fear mongering" to truly appreciate the complete cluelessness and utter incompetence of this bunch.

We are so screwed.
