We just have to accept... others!

Here's what States Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld said in an interview with Rush Limbaugh:

There have always been people who have opposed wars…I think we just have to accept it, that people have a right to say what they want to say, and to have an acceptance of that and recognize that the terrorists, Zarqawi and bin Laden and Zawahiri, those people have media committees. They are actively out there trying to manipulate the press in the United States. They are very good at it.

So in other words, people who oppose this war, are like people who oppose wars (i.e. "all wars") who are working for the terrorists.

I guess in a democracy we do have to accept other people's opinions... and be manipulated!

PS: As you can hear in this audio, Rush Limbaugh is doing a buddy-to-buddy talk rather than an interview- he started by remining Rummy that he was hailed as a 'sex symbol' in Washington... in the first G.W. Bush administration. Really? A 'sex symbol'? Who has ever thought of Donald Rumsfeld as 'a sex symbol' in the last... 20 years? The Women Veterans of WWII?

(audio here though Crooks and Liars)
