Rumsfeld Invokes Hitler
It was only a matter of time. The increasingly shrill and strident Donald Rumsfeld has accused those who oppose the war in Iraq (likely a sizable majority of Americans from both ends of the ideological spectrum and both sides of the political divide) of not only "moral and intellectual confusion," but he also raised the absurdly inapt image of appeasement to Adolph Hitler and refers, sloppily, to "a new form of fascism." He delivered these words at the American Legion's national convention in Salt Lake City. Honest debate has become next-to impossible with this administration. It has always been impossible with Rumsfeld.
