Rumsfeld steps out on the road to anarchocapitalism?

The first step in any 12 step program is to admit you have been powerless. Rumsfeld has now admitted that the government “still functions as a ‘five and dime’ store in an eBay world,” and can’t keep up with, much less control, global information flow, and global human perceptions.

Rummy’s solution however, is to promote his military public affairs officers for their “success” in selling fairy tales, and put military newsrooms on a 24/7 cycle. The Pentagon would be more popular around the world (albeit far less necessary) if Rumsfeld would continue on the 12-step program, paying special attention to Steps 4 through 10.
