What The.

I just can't make any sense of this at all:
Outgoing U.S. Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld made a secret farewell trip to Iraq, a senior Pentagon official confirmed on Saturday.

Rumsfeld's trip, first reported by ABC News, was his 13th unannounced visit to the country. It came one day after he gave a farewell address at the Pentagon and nine days before he is replaced by Robert Gates.

No other details of Rumsfeld's trip or whether he was still in Iraq were immediately available.

Seriously, I can't think of any possible reason, unless this is part of some kind of elaborate suicide plan.

In that case, may Field Marshal von Rumsfeld find success.

Narcissistic desperation is how I see it. Grovelling for lurve.
