The wisdom of Rumsfeld

Crooks and Liars has discovered a jaw droppingly stupid quote from Donald Rumsfeld. Questioned about insurgents infiltrating the Iraqi forces he said:

''It's a problem that's faced by police forces in every major city in our country, that criminals infiltrate and sign up to join the police force."
Is it a problem in the US Donald? Let's be fair here, how many LAPD or NYPD officers are planning suicide attacks against their fellow officers? How many applicants with criminal records (not suicidal bloodlust by the way) actually gets past the rigorous selection and training process at these police forces?

Jaw-droppingly stupid. Maybe he was channeling his boss?
