Oh, The Things Rummy Says

From Holden:

This is an awfully funny thing for a man who set up his own secret intelligence-gathering operation to say.

Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld refused to estimate the size of the insurgency facing US and Iraqi forces in Iraq (news – web sites), telling members of Congress the numbers were classified, and that he did not have much confidence in them in any case.

“I am not going to give you a number for it because it’s not my business to do intelligence work,” Rumsfeld said.
