Olbermann on Rummy

A first class rant on a Sec Def so arrogant that he can dismiss critics as immoral, and by extension the President that allows him to serve. At the end of the rant (either read it or watch it), he quotes Murrow:
"'We must not confuse dissent with disloyalty,' he said, in 1954.
'We must remember always that accusation is not proof, and that conviction depends upon evidence and due process of law.
'We will not walk in fear - one, of another. We will not be driven by fear into an age of un-reason, if we dig deep in our history
and our doctrine, and remember that we are not descended from fearful men; 'Not from men who feared to write, to speak, to associate, and to defend causes that were - for the moment - unpopular.'"
