Mark Steyn on the forthcoming re-emergence of Donald Rumsfeld, the Administration's truth-teller in a world of diplomatic Orwellianism:
That is Rumsfeld's function - to take the polite fictions and drag them back to the real world. During the Afghan campaign, CNN's Larry King asked him, "Is it very important that the coalition hold?"
