Jay Manifold also quotes Don Rumsfeld on the museum looting
"The images you are seeing on television, you are seeing over and over and over," he complained. "It's the same picture of some person walking out of some building with a vase and you see it twenty times. And you think, my goodness, were there that many vases?"
This is a big story. We will see who in the media has the guts to chase it up properly.
After pausing for laughter, Rumsfeld delivered the punch line: "Is it possible that there were that many vases in the whole country?"
Christ almighty. Playing the destruction of the artifacts of 7000 years of human civilization for laughs. Or not understanding its significance? No wonder the troops were not briefed on its importance. Perhaps I should go back to laughing with my lefty friends about Republicans after all.
This is a big story. We will see who (if anyone) in the media understands how important it is, and has the guts to chase it up.
