VIDEO: Kill Team: Donald Rumsfeld’s ‘Worse Than Abu Ghraib’ Tour

There’s obviously a big upside for him in convincing people that what happened Afghanistan was much worse — and so that’s what he’s been trying to do. Here he is this morning, on Fox News’ Fox & Friends, arguing that the media endlessly “hyped and pounded” the Abu Ghraib story, but lost interest in the “vastly worse” Kill Team revelations after a day.
