Listen at about 1:27.
Some brave soul screams out "War Criminal!" at the former Vice-President.
Even in the alternative universe that is the American conservative movement, someone sees clearly enough to speak the truth.
TPM has more:
Rumsfeld is being given CPAC's "Defender Of The Constitution" award, a concept that apparently rankled Paul supporters in the crowd. Many of them got up and walked out en masse at the mention of Rumsfeld, though some stayed behind in the conference hall to heckle the architects of the invasion of Iraq.And:
"Uh, Defender of the Constitution?" Justin Bradfield of Maryland scoffed when I caught up with him after he walked out of Rumsfeld's speech. "Let's see: he expanded the Defense Department more than pretty much any other defense secretary and he enforced the Patriot Act."Gotta love those libertarians!
"[Speaking] as a libertarian, that's not really the type of person who should be getting Defender of the Constitution," he added.
