Donald Rumsfeld's magical power

Donald Rumsfeld recently published a memoir in which he literally tells the world that he is not to blame for anything that went wrong in Iraq or Afghanistan. That he regards delegating authority to subordinates as a magical power by which he absolves himself of all responsibility is only reinforced by the following newly published memo. In it, he asks his Under Secretary of Defense for Policy, Douglas Feith, for some quick and simple solutions to some of the most vexing and complex problems facing the United States, some of which Rumsfeld himself was in large part responsible for creating.

This is not a parody.
