LOOKING ON THE BRIGHT SIDE….Don Rumsfeld in an interview with BBC’s Newsnight:

Asked if the security situation had improved [in Iraq], he admitted: “Statistically, no.”

“But clearly it has been getting better as we’ve gone along,” he added. “A lot of bad things that could have happened have not happened.”

Well, Martians haven’t invaded and we’ve avoided nuclear war so far. So I guess he’s right.
