Donald Rumsfeld didn't decorate the president’s World Intelligence Update cover slides with biblical quotes, a spokesman says, and GQ reporter Robert Draper should've known better than to use anonymous sources "with an axe to grind." The slides, the spokesman says in an email to Marc Ambinder of the Atlantic, were prepared by military personnel on the Joint Chiefs, not the Defense secretary.
“The suggestion that Rumsfeld would have composed, approved of, or personally shown the slides to President Bush is flat wrong,” says the spokesman. “It did not happen. When Draper goes back and checks reality against his reporting, he might also check whether GQ is in need of a new gossip columnist.”
