Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld said Tuesday the world faces ``a new type of fascism'' and likened critics of the Bush administration's war strategy to those who tried to appease the Nazis in the 1930s.

Sen. Jack Reed, D-R.I., a former Army officer and member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, said in an interview Tuesday that ``no one has misread history more than'' Rumsfeld. `It's a political rant to cover up his incompetence,'' said Reed, a longtime critic of Rumsfeld's handling of the war.
