RUMSELD CLEARS THINGS UP
"We're trying to explain how things are going, and they are going as they are going.... [this] is one moment, and there will be other moments. And there will be good moments and there will be less good moments."

Donald Rumseld, cited in Maureen Dowd's column today in the New York Times, and then Rumsfeld in yesterday's press briefing.
