Rather than deal with the issue at hand — his staggeringly poor performance — Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld chose to suggest Tuesday that critics of the Iraq war and Bush administration are ignorant of history and morally confused. "Any kind of moral and intellectual confusion about who and what is right or wrong can severely weaken the ability of free societies to persevere," Rumsfeld said at the American Legion’s national convention in Salt Lake City. In truth, many Americans can see clearly now that Iraq was not the "epicenter" of the war on terrorism, to use Rumsfeld’s word, until the United States invaded and occupied it. That makes Rumsfeld the confused one.
