At 10:30am ET today, Dubya's former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld tweeted this:

10 yrs ago began the long, difficult work of liberating 25 mil Iraqis. All who played a role in history deserve our respect & appreciation.

It garnered thousands of responses, just a few of which are reprinted after the jump...

@RumsfeldOffice Except you & your bosses, you blood-gargling psychopath.

@RumsfeldOffice if there's a hell, i'm certain you'll be burning for your involvement, you wrinkled, soulless shit
@RumsfeldOffice The absolute gall from you.
@RumsfeldOffice #warCriminal
@RumsfeldOffice TELL THAT TO THE HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF INNOCENT CIVILIANS WHO HAVE DIED (AND WHOSE DEATHS OUR GOVT DENIES) AS A RESULT
@RumsfeldOffice you and the rest should have been charged with war crimes
@RumsfeldOffice lol
Let's not forget the real issue here, BENGHAZI. 4 dead in an attack > 4500 dead after lying to get into a war. #GOPMath
@RumsfeldOffice Even YOU? Even shameful, despicable, murderous, ruinous, horrific history?
@RumsfeldOffice gee i thought that war was for WMDs. or to stop al qaeda. or oil. or iran. or something. #youpieceofshit
@RumsfeldOffice You do know you tweeted that out loud, right?
The original tweet has not been deleted, which means you can still respond directly to Dumbsfeld:

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
