US Lags in Propaganda War: Rumsfeld - New York Times

What an admission! Of course Rummy does blame the media but is he really acknowledging that wanted men on the run in the most remote mountains on the planet are beating the US in the propaganda war? Is the most advanced, techno, linked society on earth being bested at its own game by a bunch of medieval people in caves and who are probably burning twigs to keep warm? Rummy is too modest and he fails to credit himself with the monumental gifts he just gave to Al-Queda (the last in a huge, long series of gifts). He just completely dismissed the UN call for the closing of Gitmo, oblivious to all the well known atrocities there and in other detention centers but which are well known to most of the world. There is no weapon more potent in the arsenal of Al-Queda than US contempt for world opinion. Of course they are winning, and have only the American administration to thank. Our guys are so good at what they do.
