Damnit, Its the Patient's Fault!

Its the "dead enders" way, way back on 06/18/2003:
Rumsfeld blames Iraq problems on 'pockets of dead-enders'
WASHINGTON (AP) — Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld on Wednesday played down recent deadly attacks on Americans in Iraq, equating those losses with everyday violence in large U.S. cities.
Or maybe its the Turks in 2005:
US Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld said that he is upset that the US can not enter Iraq from the north (Iraqi-Turkish border) during the Iraq war and added that fomented the resistance to grow in the aftermath of the occupation. The level of insurgency in Iraq would not be so high if the U.S.-led coalition had been able to invade through Turkey, a NATO ally, Rumsfeld said Sunday.
Or maybe its the Media in March, 2006:
Rumsfeld Blames the Media
Donald Rumsfeld thinks the media is responsible for widespread fears of a civil war in Iraq. Recent polls have shown support for the President and the war in Iraq
But then, Donald thinks that the real reason for the insurgency is that Iraq hasn't appointed ministers:
The major obstacle to progress in Iraq, he suggested, was not the United States, but rather the slow efforts by Mr. Maliki's government to appoint Defense and Interior Ministers, two ministries that are central to securing Iraq.
Or maybe its Syria and Iran:
Rumsfeld: Blame Syria, Iran For Ferocious Iraq Insurgency
Posted GMT 2-10-2005 18:48:52
WASHINGTON ( -- The United States said last week it has no plans to launch a military attack on Syria. But Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld on Sunday blamed Iran and Syria for the unexpected ferocity of the Iraq insurgency.

Or maybe, just maybe it is:

"Going to get you, Dr. C."
