It comes out at last...
Umm, no. This is what happens when you play 'telephone.' Rumsfeld's original remarks are at http://dod.mil/transcripts/2003/tr20030531-depsecdef0246.html ; Die Welt ran a story at http://www.welt.de/data/2003/06/02/105924.html?search=wolfowitz&searchHILI=1 ; and the Guardian (mis)translated the quote back to English to get that. What Rumsefeld actually said:
In other words, economic pressure against Iraq is useless, but might be effective with NK.
Well dammit, damgo, thats just too inconvenient.
You mean Wolfowitz's remarks, not Rumsfeld's.
Wow, that is some bad translation. That completely changes everything. I am glad that you cleared that up, damgo.
Yeah, I meant Wolfie. :) FYI, the Guardian retracted the story: http://www.guardian.co.uk/corrections/story/0,3604,971436,00.html .
