RUMSFELD ON TERROR....A few days ago Donald Rumsfeld was asked a question about the war on terror and he answered (in part) that "It's quite clear to me that we do not have a coherent approach to this." Was this an admission that the Bush administration's policies have failed?

It's always good to be skeptical about things like this, since it's wildly unlikely that a smart, experienced political professional like Rumsfeld would accidentally make such an admission. And sure enough, the full transcript makes it pretty clear that he was actually saying the entire world lacks a coherent approach, not that he thinks the United States has failed. Robert Tagorda has the details.
