things we now know we didn't know

"It is God's will that by doing good you should silence the ignorant talk of foolish men."
1 peter 2:15
that bible passage appears under the title secretary of defense – worldwide intelligence update and over a photograph of saddam hussein on one of many similar department of defense intelligence briefing memos generated during donald rumsfeld's tenure as secretary of defense. many in the pentagon privately worried that "if these covers were leaked during a war conducted in an Islamic nation, the fallout—as one Pentagon staffer would later say—'would be as bad as Abu Ghraib.'”

that and much more on rumsfeld, his relationship with george w. bush, the war in iraq, and the administration's response to hurricane katrina in a new must-read in GQ magazine.
