Rumsfield makes surprise visit to Mosul

AP is reporting late tonight that Donald Rumsfield made a surprise visit to Mosul today. The visit was keep under tight wraps, with a small, select group of media traveling with the Defense Secretary.

It will be interesting how the MSM will report this…

UPDATE (10:48 pm MST): The Media Bistro is noting this:

“On CNN, Aaron Brown said video from the trip was expected to come around 6am Friday morning — just in time for the morning shows on Christmas Eve…”

So there IS a reason there is no pictures/video of the incident tonight…interesting.

  • Rumsfeld got in one great jab at the lamestream press. A soldier asked why good news and progressisn’t getting reported. Rumsfeld replied “I take it that question wasn’t planted by the press.”
