New York Daily News: "Rummy rips Iraq rumors"
Donald Rumsfeld can't deny incursions into Syria and then announce them later. There will be high dudgeon all around. So either there are none, as he says, or they will be completely covert.
Rumsfeld also dismissed a magazine report that the U.S. was training Iraqi commandos for raids into Syria against terrorist supporters blamed bythe U.S. for financing insurgents. "Somebody has been reading too many spy novels," Rumsfeld said, speaking at a Pentagon news conference with Russian Defense Minister Sergei Ivanov.The Debka story is looking fishier by the moment.
