    Speaking on Fox News, former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld declared Monday night that a “trained ape” could do better on foreign relations than President Obama. While speaking about the administration’s actions in Afghanistan on On the Record with Greta van Susteren, Rumsfeld declared: “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 does not take a genius.” Rumsfeld also touted the Bush administration’s record on the issue, saying it had a “first-rate” relationship with Afghan President Hamid Karzai, but that it went “downhill like a toboggan” under President Obama.
