Rumsfeld again blames others, shifting responsibility.

Is it not sad how the bad policies of the Bush administration and the incompetence of Donald Rumsfeld are always blamed on others in order to get out of any and all responsibility? Rumsfeld is good at it...he does it so often...

US Defence Secretary Donald Rumsfeld has alleged that Aljazeera is encouraging armed Islamist groups by broadcasting beheadings of foreign hostages in Iraq.

I have tried to pay close attention on this one because I never did believe all the rhetoric about Aljazeera. It is odd that I (nor anyone else I know) has ever seen any kind of video or even pictures of a beheading on Aljazeera's website

Aljazeera's media spokesman, Jihad Ballout, said.."Aljazeera has never ever shown a beheading of any hostage."

Article from Aljazeera

I have to side with the media on this one. I challenge anyone to show me footage of a beheading that was broadcast by Aljazeera. I do not believe you will find even one instance to support Rumsfeld.

What is encouraging insurgents in Iraq is the brutal occupation of their country, lack of basic necessities, unemployment as high as 50%, lack of promised reconstruction and lies, just to start a list.

Rumsfeld was one of those mentioned as having a part in fixing facts around policy and it seems obvious that he would rather take the coward's way out and blame others than take responsibility for his own actions.
