Book Excerpt

The one more or less behind Le Chiffre's right arm was tall and funereal in his dinner-jacket. His face was wooden and grey, but his eyes flickered and gleamed like a conjurer's. His whole long body was restless and his hands shifted often on the brass rail. Bond guessed that he would kill without interest or concern for what he killed and that he would prefer strangling. He had something of Lennie in Of Mice and Men, but his inhumanity would not come from infantilism but from drugs. Marihuana, decided Bond.
Casino Royale
Ian Fleming

Superfrankenstein, Monster Forcers,

Prefers strangling. Loss of humanity to pot.

It sounds like he was describing Rumsfeld.
