RUMSFELD DENIES HIS OWN STATEMENTS



In the lead-up to the U.S. invasion of Iraq, Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld said U.S. forces would be welcomed by the Iraqi citizenry and that Saddam Hussein had large stockpiles of chemical and biological weapons.

Now, after both statements have been shown to be either incorrect or vastly exaggerated, Rumsfeld - with the same trademark confidence that he exuded before the war - is denying that he ever made such assertions.

In recent testy exchanges with reporters, Rumsfeld interrupted the questioners and attacked the premise of the questions if they dealt with his pre-war comments about weapons of mass destruction and Americans-as-liberators.

You've got to read this one to believe it. You know you're in trouble when you're denying stuff that you said a few months ago, aren't you?

Damn, this makes you wonder if this guy can lie about anything, doesn't it?

It's official. Rumsfeld has become a cartoon.
