Weasel Math

     When Rumsfeld says "Of that, we -- as I recall, there's something like five or 10 of them that have been identified as people we've released and turned up back on the battlefield, trying to kill coalition and Afghan people." some questions need to be asked...

     One: How many have been released?

     Two: Does "something like five or 10" include the number 2? 3?

     Three: What percentage of people held without cause, tortured, for years, would turn around after freedom and join anti-American forces?

     Trusting Rummy's "something likes" is something stupid.
