Caveat: Blogenfreude and I are a little worried that Fucker Carlson might apologize for his idiocy between this writing (Monday 5/8) and press time (Saturday 5/13). Please be aware that [A] as of this writing he has not apologized, and [B] Blogenfreude and Blue Gal took it straight out of Carlson's own book that fact-checking is for pussies.

Fucker Carlson has cleared Rummy! We just knew Rummy wasn't guilty of anything:
I think a lot of the hostility here is misplaced. You know, people are angry about our Iraq policy; I'm one of them; I'm angry about our Iraq policy. But that's not Rumsfeld's fault, in the end. He didn't dream up the invasion of Iraq. He doesn't have the power to execute it. That's something the president did. That's also something members of Congress endorsed by their vote in the run-up to war. Those are the people you ought to be angry at.
Donald Rumsfeld is the Secretary of Defense of the United States, and supported the war against Iraq, partially on the grounds that Saddam had used chemical weapons in the 1980s.
No one important said that, just Juan Cole ...
and guess what?
Rummy's also in PNAC, that there Project For A New American Century, which said on its website that we had to do Iraq - Rummy signed a January 1998 letter to Clinton sayng we had to wipe out Saddam.
Fucker Carlson should have known better - Rummy's been saber-rattling for years.
