not quite “a dickens of a time” proving that Rumsfeld is full of it

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Senator Clinton commented while questioning Rumsfeld today that he had “made many comments and presented…many assurances that have frankly proven to be unfulfilled” regarding an overly optimistic assessment of Iraq. Rumsfeld testily responded:

Senator, I don’t think that’s true. I have never painted a rosy picture. I have been very measured in my words, and you’d have a dickens of a time trying to find instances where I have been excessively optimistic.

This ThinkProgress article shows just how easy it was to prove Rumsfeld wrong; they provide four documented examples.

update (8/7 @ 9:12am):
Here is Senator Clinton’s addendum to the Congressional Record.
