Default Re: Iraqi Abuse Scandal

I don't think Rumsfeld should take full responsibility for the problem, unless new facts of the abuse comes up, but to me, it doesn't seem that he's the one to blame for all of it.

However, there is a problem. Rumsfeld knew about the abuse as early as December 2003, but never told the President. For over 4 months, Rumsfeld knew about this and never briefed the President about it. It looks bad, because it seems like a cover-up, whether or not that's the case, it doesn't good when you know about something and not tell the President. And President Bush made it clear that he wasn't happy about it.

The fact that he withheld information about this abuse, that's what's getting him into trouble.
