"Could you use the microphone, sir? We're missing some of what you're saying."

One of the merits of having cable TV is getting to witness moments such as Donald Rumsfeld and Dick Myers testifying before the Senate Armed Services Committee about the abuse of Iraqi prisoners. Rumsfeld is scootching his chair around as if he has fleas.

You've got to figure that if Fox News is showing it, public opinion is a bit rough right now.

I'm not surprised we allowed this to happen. I am appalled, though. The thing that bothers me most is that Rumsfeld seems to think the problem is strategic, not humanitarian.
