It’s rare that a major motion picture that’s only grossed over $78 thousand dollars since July at the box office receives any kind of attention, but Rob Reiner’s Shock and Awe is one of those exceptions. As a veteran, some of this movie’s message is downright insulting, especially coming from Reiner.
No, Donald Rumsfeld Wasn’t Calling Obama a “Trained Ape”
It would appear the only people who saw racism in Donald Rumsfeld’s criticism of the Obama Administration’s lack of foreign policy competence are the very people who routinely play the race card, and this time it really didn’t work.
Is the new media template, designed to take the heat off Pelosi’s “Bush lied to us” excuse, that the former president unleashed a holy war in the Middle East?
Former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld sent President George Bush top secret wartime memos with cover sheets that mixed Scripture and battle photos to cast the Iraq invasion as a holy Christian crusade.
Rumsfeld, not a man who wore religion on his sleeve, appeared to be trying to manipulate – or curry favor with – the Bible-quoting Bush, according to an explosive story in GQ.
Some Pentagon analysts worried that if the memo covers leaked, they would inflame the Islamic world, undercut Washington’s Arab allies and bolster those who claimed America was out to Christianize the Muslim world.
Then why report this, if not to further stomp on Rumsfeld’s damaged legacy, and further pile on President Bush. And who is leaking information about “top secret wartime memos with cover sheets”? Last I heard, that is a big time felony.
And is there a problem with Christianity inspiring freedom, considering Islam seems to inspire the opposite…?
Video has emerged showing two protesters confronting former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld at the White House Correspondents’ dinner on Saturday night. As Rumsfeld entered the building, Desiree Fairooz and Medea Benjamin of CODEPINK were there to greet him.
Donald Rumsfed was responsible for the deaths of “millions” of Iraqis?
This must be pink math.
