Donald Rumsfeld sexing up the Soviet threat in 1976

Donald Rumsfeld, Secretary of Defence / Defense, speaking in 1976 about the Soviet threat.  As with Iraq nearly 30 years later, it all turned out to be lies.  Check out the stunning similarities.  Will we ever learn?  Can so many people be fooled more than once? I thought someone said "fool me once and
shame on you, and fool me twice and I'll kick your ass" (or was that George Bush).  I think the proper proverb is "fool me once and shame on you, fool me twice and shame on me".
