Donald Rumsfeld's Judgment-Happy, Scary, Biblical Defense Briefing Art

By Foster Kamer, 6:00 PM on Sun May 17 2009

This isn't crazy, or terrifying: alongside Robert Draper's GQ piece on Donald Rumsfeld being called out by former colleagues, they're running covers of his White House morning defense briefings. You have to see these.

Draper notes that the briefings were "a daily digest of critical military intelligence so classified that it circulated among only a handful of Pentagon leaders and the president; Rumsfeld himself often delivered it, by hand, to the White House." You have to wonder: was Rumsfeld sitting over a well-to-do Department of Defense intern, going through loads of pictures and trying to decide what colors he wanted which quotes to be? Or did he do it himself? Either way, these things have more in common with the Zodiac Killer than anything any kind of defense briefing should even remotely look like. Graphic designers, turn away. These aren't pretty, in so many ways.

Stand up, this is comedy. The DNA lotto may have left you smart, but can you stand up to beauty- dictator of the heart. I can stand up for hope, faith, love but while I'm getting over certainty. Stop walking God across the road like a little old lady. - Bono

What bothers me the most about these is that the scripture is taken completely out of context.

Palestinian People are defending themselves and their Land and their Homes against Israeli war crimes and Israeli war criminals, both military and civilian.

Raintree.....when a Christian prays sincerely from the heart w/ humility God will guide them to accomplish his will. Unless you have a direct line to Heaven yourself * than you do not know if God touched the hearts of those who made the strategic decisions concerning the Iraq War! You can whistle all the tunes of dissent you wish but those specifically & intimately involved are the ones who are aware of the TRUTH here. You are on the outside looking in & mind you w/ a very biased heart @ that!

God sees the entire picture...not just the consequences America may or may not experience from entering Iraq. Remember he deeply loves the Iraqi ppl. & he willingly died for their precious souls also. The American ppl. are not his SOLE interest by any means! God watched from Heaven on a daily basis the barbaric atrocities which Saddam...his 2 sons Uday & Qusay + his diabolical henchmen were committing @ any given opportunity! Ever heard of genocide?! God is also aware that you will waste no time in criticizing & demonizing the Bush Administration & their efforts to bring Democracy to the Middle East for the sake of your own liberal agenda!

Blonde, DOD briefings containing biblical verses remind me of one thing- #8 on the 14 points of fascism.

Religion and Government are Intertwined.

8.)  Religion and Government are Intertwined: Governments in fascist nations tend to use the most common religion in the nation as a tool to manipulate public opinion. Religious rhetoric and terminology is common from government leaders, even when the major tenets of the religion are diametrically opposed to the government's policies or actions.

In this case, Rumsfeld used religion to manipulate Bush. Not that Bush was easily manipulated....wink mini

The topic IS Rumsfeld's Biblical briefing teri....a spiritual understanding you are clueless about! No need to push your buttons lady....your reasoning far surpasses the realm of delusional!


Nice try teri.....you are always conveniently silent about the genocide the Palestinian Gov't of Hamas is inflicting 24/7 upon Israel. @ least I have repeatedly denounced the unnecessary violence in reference to both sides. But of course you only read what you wish to take in concerning my comments. Whatever will boost your false argument against me. I have expressed my deepest compassion for the innocent Palestinians countless times! So your argument IS fruitless & filled w/ dishonesty as usual lady! Equally troubling is your silence about the brutal killings & tortures Saddam & his henchmen inflicted upon his own ppl. & the compassionate need to assist these innocent Iraqi citizens. The virtues are called compassion & love.....neither are selectively chosen!  Sometimes these virtues are carried in the realm of Military actions! Sadly it is more important to you to demean me as opposed to condemning Saddam for his diabolical actions & reaching out to those who have been violently victimized by this very ruthless dictator!  Disturbingly your priorities are very obvious here, teri~
