I just couldn't believe it when a I heard it on the BBC World Service early this morning, but here it is on the site: Rumsfeld urges Chinese openness
Donald Rumsfeld, who thinks Congress should give him a blank check and shut up, the man who can't explain why he hasn't spent millions on armor as required by Congress, was in China lecturing the Chinese on the importance of being open about defense spending.
It is highly likely that there is a good deal more known about the Chinese defense budget than the American budget. Rumsfeld won't submit a regular request that includes expenses for either Afghanistan or Iraq, and keeps pushing for large blocks of unassigned money.
It's a bit like Newt Gingrich lecturing on the sanctity of marriage.
