Professor Norton gives Rummy a history lesson

In today’s Times Cornell History Professor Mary Beth Norton tells readers exactly why Rumsfeld’s comparisons of America in the 1780s and and Iraq in 2003 are inaccurate, misleading, and based on an antique and frankly wrong interpretation of the era of the Articles of Confederation. I hope, along with Professor Norton, that Rummy goes out and reads some American history published after 1910.
