Spc. Joe Darby has become the poster child of whistleblowers. In case you aren't familiar with this dude, he was stationed in Iraq a couple of years ago at Abu Ghraib after a shooting had taken place. He asked Spec. Charles Graner for photos of the site where the shooting took place, but Graner, not much of a "labeler", gave Darby two CD's of the wrong pics. When he looked at what he got, Darby supposedly thought it over for a while and turned over the now infamous photos of prisoners being abused and put in compromising situations. Graner felt a brief moment of relief when he realized he hadn't given Darby the photos of his sexual liason with that manly chick he eventually knocked up.
The Army, not necessarily distinguished when it comes to keeping promises (ask anyone who has enlisted in the last 30 years), assured Darby that his identity would be kept secret. Obviously, it didn't take a lot of smarts to know that once the shit hit the fan, Darby and his family would be ostracized by his fellow soldiers.
A few months go by and the pictures cause quite an outcry from the media, the left, the right, Dubya Bush, and whoever else was on their high horse that day. Even the military pretended to be ashamed of it.
The kicker came as Secretary of Defense Rumsfeld testified to a congressional committee. The dickweed publicly thanked Joe Darby for his courageous act of ratting out his fellow soldiers. In essence he ratted out the rat. Then, in an act of real turdness, gave a half-hearted Urkel "did I do that?" for his faux pas. Are we to assume that Rummy wasn't told that the guy didn't want his name revealed? If you believe that, then you aren't very smart.
I know that people are upset at Darby. Some support him. Either way, you have to agree that Rumsfeld was a real prick. Just like the bitch he is, he couldn't wait to spill the beans on the guy that ruined his fun. And blabbing the informant's name has resulting in Darby being put in the Army's version of the witness protection program at this point. His wife has to wear "Groucho glasses" so she won't be recognized at the PX. So let's put the shoe on the other foot.
I'm calling on all of you out there who have some dirt on Donald Rumsfeld to come forth and share with us. If you're the hooker that blew him in an elevator, let us know. If he screwed you out of job so that his nephew could get it, tell us about it. Let's face it, the guy is a dick.
