CBS: Rumsfeld Criticizes Condoleezza Rice
Rumsfeld was also critical of Powell's successor, Condoleezza Rice, for her lack of experience in government.
"She'd never served in a senior administration position," he said. "She'd been an academic. And, you know, a lot of academics like to have meetings. And they like to bridge differences and get people all to be happy."
Of course, this isn't the first time that der Donald has shared his smoldering contempt for the touchy-feelie frilly undie-wearing world of foreign policy process - after all, why bother to find a committee-driven consensus toward resolving an international issue when one can just drop a daisy cutter on the problem and build a truck plaza upon the smoking crater, amirite?
Diplomacy is icky girlie stuff, and real manly men don't do such unknown unknowns...No fog of war looming around here, no sir.
