WASHINGTON, D.C. 23.10.03 Will Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld never stop? Portrayed in the mainstream press as a crotchety but smart geezer, Rummy has practically set up his own government. It's almost like a mini-coup in Bush's Washington.
by David Roknich
From a press conference last year, archived by the US State Department
Rumsfeld: It's not for me to give advice to other countries. We do have a
saying in America, if you're in a hole, stop digging. I'm not sure I should have
said that. [Laughter] Let's pretend I never said that. [Laughter]"
Who is he laughing at?
