One of the things the writer evidently does not know how to do, and may not know he does not know it, is how to say what he has to say in only approximately as many words as necessary. However, it is still interesting and the bank robber story is deeply amusing.
And he is also evidently one of those people who think that "Rumsfeld" is a kind of evil talisman that causes all that that person said or thought to be dumb or wrong. How dumb would you have to be to think that way? Truth is where you find it. I'm sure Nero, Hitler, Mao, pick your monster, had all sorts of clever insights and accurate perceptions in addition to their wicked actions. It's not as if being on the proscribed list of the New York Times turns one into a 100 percent reliable falsehood producer. Even the New York Times is not always wrong. They are that unreliable.
