Honestly, it's almost painful to beat up on members of the BTs, what with there being no intellectual challenge to it. Exhibit A: this twit who, editorializing on the recent Donald Rumsfeld-Ray McGovern slapfest in his own comments section, writes of Rumsfeld:
He didn't get embarassed, [sic] ...
Yes, he did. Onward.
Rumsfeld seemed like he put that hack in his place especially the bit about the suits protecting the soldiers from chemical and biological weapons.
Ah, that would be part where Rumsfeld said the following:
It’s easy for you to make a charge, but why do you think that the men and women in uniform every day, when they came out of Kuwait and went into Iraq, put on chemical weapon protective suits? Because they liked the style?
They honestly believed that there were chemical weapons. We believed he had those weapons.
No, those troops didn't wear those protective suits because they honestly believed there were chemical weapons; they wore them because they had been ordered to:
CAMP MATILDA, Kuwait - Thousands of US and British forces are set to invade Iraq wearing heavy rubber overboots and a padded suit that will ward off chemical attacks but will likely kill some of them from heat exhaustion.
Military commanders have ordered that all troops heading into Iraq must don the charcoal-lined suits that seal them from the nerve and blister agents that the United States alleges Iraq still possesses in defiance of United Nations resolutions.
As for this idiot's parting shot:
The CIA guy is probably from the Valerie Plame/Joe Wilson crowd and who knows, probably even donated money to the DNC and John Kerry, just like that leaker who recently got the can.
I think the operative phrase here is "ad hominem." You can look it up.
BY THE WAY, if you really need proof that Donald Rumsfeld is full of it when it comes to the issue of WMDs, well, go wild.
