I always knew that Bush was not perfectly sane, and that Rumsfeld was a sort of Rasputin. But I am nonetheless petrified at the top secret documents released by GQ magazine: http://men.style.com/gq/features/topsecret
Rumsfeld cynically played on the President's infantile dry-drunk religious superstition, apocalypticism and Messiah-complex, just as the same Rumsfeld played with the bodies and souls of the prisoners he had tortured.
The President's deluded war mission brought death to hundreds of thousands and misery to millions. All because Rumsfeld was adroit in plying him with bible verses.
But Rumsfeld himself seems to have severe psychological problems.
Why is there no basic psychological testing of political leaders?
