I Guess the Taliban is Too Busy Making Snow bin Ladens in the Winter

Oh, Rummy. You make us love that we love to hate you so.

Asked about the [deteriorating situation in Afghanistan today], Rumsfeld admitted there was a resurgence of the Taliban, admitted Taliban fighters were “occupying safe havens” in Pakistan and other places, and admitted that violence has increased recently. Then he blamed it all on the weather:

Does the violence tend to be up during the summer, in the spring, Summer and fall months? Yes it does. And it tends to decline during the winter period. Does that represent failed policy? I don’t know. I would say not.

Up next, violence decreasing in Baghdad except on Mondays, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursdays, Saturdays, and Sundays. And Iraq is relatively safe, except for recent years.
