Donald Rumsfeld, former U.S. Secretary of Defense, condemned President Obama's foreign policy on Fox News' program "On the Record with Greta van Susteren", stating that "a trained ape" could do better. “We have status of forces agreements probably with 100, 125 countries in the world. This administration, the White House, and the State Department, have failed to get a status of forces agreement. A trained ape could get a status of forces agreement. It doesn't take a genius.” This proposed agreement would leave the U.S. free to install troops in Afghanistan whenever it deems necessary, and would remain active for many years. Rumsfeld continued to express concern over the state of U.S. relations with Afghanistan, saying, "We have so mismanaged that relationship." Hamid Karzai, standing president of Afghanistan, made his support of Russia's annexation of the Crimean peninsula known last weekend. Rumsfeld offered his sympathy, stating that, "United States diplomacy has been so bad -- so embarrassingly bad -- that I’m not the least bit surprised that he felt cornered and is feeling he has to defend himself in some way or he’s not president of that country,”  Predictably, Rumsfeld went on to clarify that the Bush administration had a "first-rate" relationship with Karzai and Afghanistan, referring to its current status as going, "downhill like a toboggan" thanks to President Obama and his affiliates. “By golly they have trashed Karzai publicly over and over and over,” Other nations that have spoken in support of Putin's decision are Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Syria, Venezuela and North Korea. Despite publicly proclaiming that he doesn't "do diplomacy," in 2004, Rumsfeld has offered his diplomatic service to the current administration. This may not be advisable, as his attitude towards the 2003 Iraq invasion was summarized when he stated that "stuff happens" and that "death has a tendency to encourage a depressing view of war" when asked about casualties in both the Iraq and Afghan conflicts.
