March of the strawmen

Donald Rumsfeld, on Rush's show today:

SECRETARY RUMSFELD: Well, it's a funny thing. I asked one reporter about [the embedding process], and there was kind of the impression left that, "Well, if you got embedded then you were really part of the problem instead of part of the solution and you were almost going over to the other side," argument. I think that's an inexcusable thought, and I don't know if that's the case.

Who is the reporter Secretary Rumsfeld? Name him or her. But you won't, will you, because what you really want to do is to mount another cowardly, sick, smear against a nameless, faceless press so that no one will actually be able to respond, or rebut the accusation.

And what's this "...kind of the impression left that"? What kind of construction is that? Your own fevered imagination of the conversation? What did that reporter actually say? Who was it? Be a man. I'm not hopeful, though.
