Sorry for stating the obvious in the headline, but now more than ever, Rumsfeld is behaving like a lunatic. A 6th grader could give better answers than these:
Asked about the number of insurgents in Iraq, Rumsfeld replied: "I am not going to give you a number."
Did he care to voice an opinion on efforts by U.S. pilots to seek damages from their imprisonment in Iraq? "I don't."
Could he comment on what basing agreements he might seek in Iraq? "I can't."
How about the widely publicized cuts to programs for veterans? "I'm not familiar with the cuts you're referring to."
Not familiar? These are Bush's cuts that impact Rummy's department and he's not familiar with them? Seriously... Wouldn't a grade school student be flunked or sent to the principal for these sorts of answers? Here's the worst:
When the ranking Democrat on the House Armed Services Committee, Rep. Ike Skelton (Mo.), asked about the number of insurgents in Iraq, the secretary said, "I am not going to give you a number for it because it's not my business to do intelligent work."
