A 1966 article in the Chicago Tribune quoted Rumsfeld as saying the following: "The administration should clarify its intent in Viet Nam," he said. "People lack confidence in the credibility of our government. Even our allies are beginning to suspect what we say," he charged. "It's a difficult thing today to be informed about our government even without all the secrecy," he said. "With the secrecy, it's impossible. The American people will do what's right when they have the information they need." [Chicago Tribune, 4/13/66]Need a little salt 'n ketchup to make eatin' yer words more palatable, asshole?
