12/07/2004: Are these real?
Found in a correspondent's .sig quote. I'd really like to believe that Rumsfeld is as stupid as to actually say some (or even better, all) of these things (if he has, he's up there with Dumbya Bush in the lacking brains department), but these have me wondering... some just seem a little too pat:
I would not say that the future is necessarily less predictable than the past. I think the past was not predictable when it started.Nothing like the certainty of covering all the possibilities...
We do know of certain knowledge that he [Osama Bin Laden] is either in Afghanistan, or in some other country, or dead.
Death has a tendency to encourage a depressing view of war.
I believe what I said yesterday. I don't know what I said, but I know what I think, and, well, I assume it's what I said.
