Swimming to Cambodia, Rumsfeld Edition

I have to say the Piers Morgan interview with Rumsfeld was fascinating. At points, he sounded like General Jay Gardner, who was, of course, summarily dismissed. Most importantly, there were hints of fairly wide space between Rummy and the White House.

It's also fascinating that no one - not even journalists - remember or look up the stated objectives of Operation Iraqi Freedom, even as Rumsfeld.com was brought up. Never once did Piers bring up "drain the swamp", either, although other odd misconceptualizations, like "War on Terror", did come up. Odd moral and tactical formulations like 'better we fight them over there, than here' didn't get discussed.

I guess I have to read the book...
