Revelations about Rumsfeld in new GQ

Breaking News

Might Donald Rumsfeld be left off the guest list for Bush administration reunions? In a piece for GQ, Robert Draper interviews former officials and discovers"intense feelings of ill will toward Donald Rumsfeld." In interviewing these officials, Draper writes, it"becomes evident that Rumsfeld impaired administration performance on a host of matters extending well beyond Iraq to impact America's relations with other nations, the safety of our troops, and the response to Hurricane Katrina." Rumsfeld sought to please Bush by playing to his religiosity—Draper's most shocking find is Defense Department intelligence briefing covers featured biblical quotes. One person said, if leaked, the memos"would be as bad as Abu Ghraib." A former cabinet official puts its plainly:"Don did not like to play well with other people."
