Politcs: Critics are immoral and confused says Rumsfeld

Whoa. Thanks, Rummy! I really appreciate your kind words.
In unusually explicit terms, Rumsfeld portrayed the administration's critics as suffering from "moral and intellectual confusion" about what threatens the nation's security and accused them of lacking the courage to fight back.
They just don't get it. Plenty of Bush critics understand the threats we face. We just want to solve the problem with some sense of intelligence. Have you ever heard of a strategic plan? Ever thought to equip our troops with the things they need to battle our enemies? Ever thought to go after the people who attacked our country? Have you ever once considered telling the truth and obeying the law? Yes, you can have a courageous, well-planned strategy to to protect our country and our citizens. No, you can't do it without planning. You are calling us confused? Have you listened to your commander in chief lately?

It is worth pointing out that calling people "immoral and confused" is not the same as using "moral and intellectual confusion" to describe how most Americans view the wars in Iraq and elsewhere.

Rumfield is right, if he meant that most Americans are confused, intellectually and morally, given the threat that Islam poses.

The fault lies in equivocating the war in Iraq and elsewhere with our struggle against Islam's goal to rule the world.
