Adios Saddam, You Knucklehead
Rumsfeld was sent to secure good relations with Saddam in 1983, a year after the 1982 heinous crime he's now been convicted of. It wasn't important then. It's a crime against humanity today.
In fact Reagan made Iraq an ally providing the gas and weapons needed to kill Kurds and Shia throughout the 80's as long as they were an ally against the evil Iran. Nothing else mattered then.
In 1984 Reagan sold Saddam 45 helicopters that were useful for gasing Kurdish villages in 1988.
The U.S. Senate tried to sanction Iraq over this but the White House killed that.
Rumsfeld was Reagan's point man in Iraq during these crimes against humanity.
Maybe he'll get a medal after he leaves running a disastrous occupation of Iraq, like the other Bush failures?
It's enough to make informed voters wonder who the bad guys really are? Informed voters? heh.
