The problem with obfuscation


Tillman Friendly Fire
Originally uploaded by BHowdy.
The problem with not being straight forward and open is that no matter what you say, no one will believe you.

Notes Glenn Kessler in today's Washington Post:
Former defense secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld, making his first appearance on Capitol Hill since President Bush relieved him last year, denied yesterday that he or top generals tried to cover up the "friendly fire" death of former football star and Army Ranger Pat Tillman in Afghanistan three years ago.
Frankly, I'd be more apt to believe the former Secretary of Defense if I thought he knew how to tell the truth.
