Earlier this week, Rummy blamed the media for exaggerating about the war in Iraq.

Today, in another of his delusions, he told the Senate that Iraqi forces could prevent the civil war:

Mr. Rumsfeld replied that the "sectarian tension and conflict" in Iraq do not constitute a civil war "at the present time by most experts' calculation."

The secretary went on to say that he believed the unrest in Iraq "while changing in its nature from insurgency toward sectarian violence" was still "controllable by Iraqi security forces and multinational forces."

What Iraqi forces is he talking about? Not one of the Iraqi batallions can fight on their own we learned from just last month. Not one:

The number of Iraqi army battalions judged by their American trainers to be capable of fighting insurgents without U.S. help has fallen from one to none since September, Pentagon officials said yesterday.

Does anyone know what the hell is really going on over there?
