"Snowflakes" are the term for the little post-it notes that Donald Rumsfeld used to issue policy decrees when he was the Secretary of Defense. You know, he'd jot down "invade that country" on a little post-it, and off we'd go, committing hundreds of thousands of troops and billions of dollars.

You think I'm kidding, right?

Nope. Not only that, but the following gems made into his sacred scraps of parchment to be turned into public policy:
...Muslims avoid "physical labor";
..."keep elevating the threat";
..."link Iraq to Iran"
..."Develop bumper sticker statements to rally support."
This is, ladies and gentlemen, the man who was responsible for our war policy. I hope you're as proud as I am.
