Donald Rumsfeld was giving the president his daily briefing.
He concluded by saying: “Yesterday, 3 Brazilian soldiers were killed.”
“OH NO!” the President yells. “That’s terrible….just terrible!”
His staff watches as he buries his head in his hands and saying, “This is bad; bad for the coalition.”
His staff sits stunned at this display since he had never shown much interest when other reports came in of American casualties.
Finally, the President looks up and asks to no one in particular, “So exactly how many is a brazillian?”
