It would probably be better if vyeh explained what is meant by Rumsfeld's "light footprints" theory, and then we can condense that to a one-line if it works.
lol @ Austrian Economists as potentially fascist. The Austrian School is actually known for free market fundamentalism, well beyond the corporatism of the Chicago School, and includes such names as Ludwig Von Mises, Fredrick Hayek, Murray Rothbard, and Joseph Schumpeter. (The "Austrian School", today, is more US based, with most of them having been driven from Austria by the Nazis.) What I was referring to was using the particular form of logic pioneered by Mises for things he never intended. They would be horrified by our chessmaster.
However, Austria is a good country to have him come from, I think. They do play Chess there, yes?
