Default Donald Rumsfeld Calls Oakland Raiders 'Evil'

In a recent interview that just so happened to take place on Super Bowl Sunday, Donald Rumsfeld -- who was notoriously regarded as callous during his term as Defense Secretary during George W. Bush's Iraq War -- dropped another "evildoer" reference. But this time he was talking about the Oakland Raiders.

It's true the Raiders have maintained a wild, outlaw image dating back to the 1970s, with eccentric oddball players, including Jack "The Assassin" Tatum. But let's not forget Rumsfeld's own outlaw image with his shock and awe bombing campaign during the Iraq War. Or that he responded to the looting in Baghdad, saying "stuff happens."

While one could accuse Raiders owner Al Davis of looting Oakland, we'd hope that city's politicos could come up with better retorts than "stuff happens."


Or is this the face of evil?
​Four years after his resignation as defense secretary, Rumsfeld sat down with the Financial Times to talk about the book he is publishing, Known and Unknown, which details his own version of the controversial Iraq War. At 78, Rumsfeld remains unapologetic about his role in the conflict, saying the war was both justified and successful.

"Is our country and region better off with Saddam Hussein gone?" Rumsfeld asks Gideon Rachman of the Financial Times, before answering his own question. "You bet."

Rusmfeld wrapped up the interview talking about football; it was Super Bowl Sunday and he asked Rachman whether he was for the Steelers or the Packers. Rachman responds that he likes the Steelers, "because of the epic games against the Oakland Raiders in the 1970s."

To which the man who famously shook Saddam's hand responded: "Nobody could support the Raiders. They're evil."

This actually makes the Raiders look good considering Rumsfeld is one of the biggest idiots to ever grace the national stage.

You can call Rummy lots of different things, but if idiot is the best you can come up with, you were not paying attention for the last 50 years.

Personally I'm with Nixon on this one, "ruthless little bastard" probably covers it.

Bingo. Rumsfeld and Cheney make the sissies squirm.... ha ha ha. Can't wait for my library to be forced to buy 3 copies of this book.

Rumsfeld was an intelligent dude, but he got some things monumentally wrong.

And the Raiders being evil? I suppose that's a known known.
