Rumsfeld showed these pictures this a.m. on Fox News on some plane going somewhere.

And while we're talking about that, it was curious that while Rumsfeld was giving the interview in the air, you could see the pilot. Is it normal for gov officials to fly with the cockpit door open? With reporters on board?

Diddo that. Hasn't been since the early 1900s that the US troops are riding them horses huh?

So much for tanks, hummers, jets ect. We're going back to original US Cavalry.

I thought I heard Rummy say that the ones in lighter clothing were Americans but I could be wrong ... figuratively they're all on white horses .... and have silver bullets ...... :-)

Looks like Barbara Boxer is good for something. Our troops could ride her (no not like that... we already know that everyone has had a ride on Barbie Boxer), she is a jackass.

That's because the good guys are always in white! Hi-ho Silver! I saw a documentary a couple weeks ago and they showed the NA on horseback. It looked likes something out of a Ghengis (sp) Khan setting.

Well I think he is advertising on FR, his FR Screen Name gives the first clue.

I have a website but I don't think that's fair to go on Jim Robinson's Website and promote my website. That's Free advertisment and it's not fair for J.R. or FR. Oh well he's hoping someone will go to his website, but there is a thing called a search engine where one can submit their site.

Q: What's this?

Rumsfeld: It's the Rumsfeld transformation. Those are -- the ones in the light, camouflage garb are, in fact, American Special Forces.

Q: On horseback.

Rumsfeld: On horseback in Afghanistan, and there is probably the first cousin to my donkey, Moe, and that is how they are moving equipment. Are you all able to see this?

Q: What are they doing?

Rumsfeld: They -- it's a pack animal. They pack them, heavily pack them and move equipment, ammunition, food.

Q: [Inaudible.]

Rumsfeld: This is dated 11/13, so it was probably on or about that period.

Q: How many -- ?

Rumsfeld: We are literally -- I have seen drop orders that included saddles, bridles and horse feed.

Q: So what does that say about how things are being fought in Afghanistan?

Rumsfeld: It says that we have some terrific young people.

That's so the reporters can see who is going to throw them out the door without a parachute if they misbehave.

I've been telling my students for years that horsemanship is a martial art ...
I once had a retired member of the U.S. military laugh at me
for saying so in the presence of a member of the Irish Army show jumping team...

I told a friend in the DoD in Germany, back in September that they would need horses over there..
He said they'd use Bradley's... (I'm sure they will...but..)

Thanks for this pic...
I'm going to hang it in my tack room..
Just goes to show..sometimes you have to "get Medieval on their a$$es".. literally..
Leave it to our Special Forces to do whatever works and get the job done..

Ride easy, cowboys...bless you
