. . . you'll like this.

What I like about Rumsfeld is very simple -- he doesn't give a shit what you might think about what he's about to say. That allows him to communicate freely and honestly. And often, he's damn funny in his ability to weave the serious work of managing the US defense infrastructure with a bit of humor -- like when asked a few months ago who we could count on in Iraq he said, "I believe Libya, Cuba and Germany are the ones that I have indicated won't help in any respect."

Of course, since then, Libya has stepped up. The other two are still strangely silent.
