Rumsfeld's Appeasement of Saddam

Last week Rumsfeld claimed that opponents of the war in Iraq were like Chamberlain and other Nazi appeasers in 1938. Hmmmmm......yet, who met with Saddam in 1983, shook his hand, and was silent, in fact, was approving of what Saddam was doing to Iranians and Kurds in the 1980s? Why none other than Donald Rumsfeld! Yep, that's him. Same eye glasses shaking hands with the man who used sarin on Kurds and other chemical weapons on the Iranians in the 1980s. Yep, the same attacks for which Saddam is now being tried as a war criminal in Iraq.

Was Donald Rumsfeld fighting terror here, or was he appeasing terrorists? After all, in 1938, Hitler hadn't really begun his fighting yet, his war against the world, so Rumsfeld really does fit the Chamberlain role really well, one would think. Mother Jones has opened the world to NY Times's Select Op-ed by Frank Rich called Donald Rumsfeld's Dance with Nazis in which he shows who the true appeaser is. Like Olbermann's rebuttal last week, this shows just how horrible Rumsfeld is as a secretary of defense. When will enough Americans realize this and order him out!
