Analysis of Rumsfeld's speech

Slate has a great take on Rumsfeld's supposedly impromptu speech and Q & A session yesterday in Kuwait. He answered some questions in a rather glib manner and came off as high, mighty and rather uninvolved with the can of worms that likely never should have been opened. The writer goes on to state that with a year of preparation for this invasion, the military should have had the equipment they needed, it was not a snap decision. This invasion was planned months before Bush was even handed the presidency in 2000.

Read for yourself the take on yesterday's speech.
