The defense secretary who presided over the Iraq war has the nerve to compare the black president to a “trained ape.” Not racist, though.

During an appearance on Fox News’ “On the Record with Greta van Susteren,” Rumsfeld criticized the White House for not securing a status of forces agreement with Afghanistan.

“We have status of forces agreements probably with 100, 125 countries in the world,” Rumsfeld said. “This administration, the White House, and the State Department, have failed to get a status of forces agreement. A trained ape could get a status of forces agreement. It doesn’t take a genius.”

Hamid Karzai doesn’t  want a SOFA, but every candidate to replace him does, and Karzai’s days in office are numbered. How about the reason Karzai and those in his camp don’t want a status of forces agreement: they don’t want us there.
