Olbermann Blasts Rumsfeld

Kudos to MSNBC's Keith Olbermann for blasting Donald Rumsfeld over the speech yesterday in which the Secretary Of Defense continued his "if you criticize us, you're unpatriotic" tour.

The commentary invokes other instances in history when those who don't understand freedom have mistaken the questioning of our leaders for disloyalty, when in fact it is every American's birthright. Rumsfeld, in demonizing disagreement, refuses to see that it's possible to want to defeat terrorists while seeing flaws in the methods used to achieve that goal, just as you can support the troops but be repulsed at the continuing strategic blunders with which our leaders put those troops, and us, in even more danger.

Olbermann doesn't just make excellent points, he does it with tremendous writing skills. See for yourself.
