Piers Morgan can be a fierce interviewer and I'm grateful he continues to push against the whole cynicism on gun rights owners and the NRA that passing gun control laws such as background checks won't make any difference in the issue.

However, Morgan and CNN are being naive when bringing someone infamous like neoconservative former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld onto his show to talk about scandals.

Now fellow Kossacks, what did we learn in Professor Rumsfeld's class today?  

Absolutely NOTHING, except that Professor Rumsfeld appears to have an opinion on the scandals and they add nothing to the debate.

How appropriate is it that CNN is giving Rumsfeld airtime so he can articulate his views when CNN itself did almost nothing to investigate the Iraq War from the beginning.  Michael Moore even knows this.

Then again, Rummy is liked on Fox News by Sean Hannity and others.  He says the Obama administration failed to do its job on Libya and the Benghazi situation.  I think I'm about to crack up now.

So what do we have to say about the man who committed this giant whopper of a statement while being Secretary of Defense?

There are known knowns; there are things we know that we know.
There are known unknowns; that is to say, there are things that we now know we don't know.
But there are also unknown unknowns – there are things we do not know we don’t know.
Oh Rumsfeld.  We miss you man!  NOT!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
