In a previous post, I gave the impression that Rumsfeld was a "chickenhawk," that is, that he had no military experience (other than as a civilian head of the military).
THIS IS INCORRECT.
According to Gary Leupp, who is a raving liberal with no reason to defend Rumsfeld, "Rumsfeld is an ex-Navy officer who remained in the reserves until he joined the Gerald Ford administration (1975-7) as the youngest-ever Secretary of Defense."
I stand corrected. Rumsfeld has served in the military.
I apologize if anyone's opinion of Rumsfeld was negatively influenced by my mistake.
That is all.
