  • Donald Rumsfield thinks the raiders are evil

    http://blogs.sfweekly.com/thesnitch/...ld_raiders.php

    In a recent interview that just so happened to take place on Super Bowl Sunday, Donald Rumsfeld -- who was notoriously regarded as callous during his term as Defense Secretary during George W. Bush's Iraq War -- dropped another "evildoer" reference. But this time he was talking about the Oakland Raiders.

    It's true the Raiders have maintained a wild, outlaw image dating back to the 1970s, with eccentric oddball players, including Jack "The Assassin" Tatum. But let's not forget Rumsfeld's own outlaw image with his shock and awe bombing campaign during the Iraq War. Or that he responded to the looting in Baghdad, saying "stuff happens."

    While one could accuse Raiders owner Al Davis of looting Oakland, we'd hope that city's politicos could come up with better retorts than "stuff happens."


    Or is this the face of evil?
    ​Four years after his resignation as defense secretary, Rumsfeld sat down with the Financial Times to talk about the book he is publishing, Known and Unknown, which details his own version of the controversial Iraq War. At 78, Rumsfeld remains unapologetic about his role in the conflict, saying the war was both justified and successful.

    "Is our country and region better off with Saddam Hussein gone?" Rumsfeld asks Gideon Rachman of the Financial Times, before answering his own question. "You bet."

    Rusmfeld wrapped up the interview talking about football; it was Super Bowl Sunday and he asked Rachman whether he was for the Steelers or the Packers. Rachman responds that he likes the Steelers, "because of the epic games against the Oakland Raiders in the 1970s."

    To which the man who famously shook Saddam's hand responded: "Nobody could support the Raiders. They're evil."

      That's all you need to know about Rumsfeld. I don't want to say anymore and get political since that's probably against the rules.

      By the way I'd put the Patriots spy-gate era way above the Raiders in terms of being evil.

      Who agrees lol.

              I love it when people like Donald Rumsfeld are calling the Oakland Raiders "evil"
