During rambling tirade against Obama’s handling of the Afghanistan war yesterday, Donald Rumsfeld told Fox News’ Greta Van Susteren that “a trained ape” could do a better job.
Van Susteren ended the interview shortly after.
Rumsfeld’s critique of Obama’s rocky relationship with Afghan president Hamid Karzai is disingenuous to say the least, considering the fact that Karzai is famous for his erratic and unpredictable behavior and widespread allegations of corruption.
After repeated strategic blunders in both the Afghanistan and Iraq campaigns, George W. Bush eventually replaced Rumsfeld with Bob Gates as defense secretary.
