“Boy, two years makes a difference”

Rumsfeld: There’s nothing wrong with a bit of looting 11 Apr 2003 The United States Defence Secretary, Donald Rumsfeld, has tonight dismissed reports of mass chaos and lawlessness in Iraq as “exaggerated”. “The so-called looting is not as bad as some reports have suggested,” he said at a Pentagon briefing. “Yes, people are ransacking hospitals, burning down buildings and fighting each other in the streets, but it’s not that bad. Stuff happens.”
