New York Times columnist Paul Krugman’s most recent piece calling 9/11 “an occasion for shame,” has elicited the ire of former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld to the point that he has canceled his office’s subscription to the publication, reports the Daily Caller.

“After reading Krugman’s repugnant piece on 9/11, I canceled my subscription to the New York Times this AM,” Rumsfeld’s office tweeted earlier this morning.

Rumsfeld’s chief of staff Keith Urbahn clarified that although the former Secretary of Defense had cancelled his personal subscription years ago, his office still held a subscription, that is until he read Krugman’s column.

“ . . . After reading Paul Krugman, he decided to cancel it. We may not be getting the New York Times anymore, but I doubt we’ll be missing much.”

The online-only column arguing that “the memory of 9/11 has been irrevocably poisoned,” appeared Sunday on the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.
