Too Little, Too Late

Saturday, May 8th, 2004 · No Comments “WASHINGTON — A contrite Donald Rumsfeld apologized yesterday to Iraqi prisoners abused by their American captors, and warned that the outrage will worsen if other images of the actions of U.S. soldiers at Abu Ghraib prison become public.

“‘There are a lot more photographs and videos that exist,’ the U.S. Defence Secretary told the Senate armed services committee. ‘If these are released to the public, obviously it’s going to make matters worse. That’s just a fact.

‘I mean, I looked at them last night and they’re hard to believe,’ he continued glumly, without going into detail.”

In other words, Rumsfeld is already in such trouble and facing pressure to resign that he doesn’t want to add fuel to the fire engulfing him.
