Former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld is just as confused as the rest of the millions of Americans scrambling to file their taxes Tuesday.
Errol Morris spent more than 30 hours interviewing Donald Rumsfeld. He sifted through thousands of memos - "snowflakes," Rumsfeld called them - from the former secretary of defense and architect of the Iraq war.
Former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld sure didn't mince words this week when he slammed President Obama and his administration for their handling of Afghanistan: A "trained ape" could do better, he said.
Director Errol Morris spent 33 hours interviewing Donald Rumsfeld for his new documentary ‘’The Unknown Known.” But Mr. Morris says the former U.S. defense secretary proved hard to fathom.
Former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld said Thursday he expects that the use of drone planes will continue to play a significant role in the global "War on Terror," and that the prison at Guantanamo Bay should remain open.
Liberal filmmaker Michael Moore told CNN's Piers Morgan that former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld was a war criminal and that several in the Bush administration ought to be in jail.
The Obama administration is not necessarily winning the sequester game, despite blaming Republicans for the nation's economic woes, employing nimble rhetoric and staging melodramatic public events. Many Americans are not buying the buoyant White House talking points: a strong plurality of likely voters believe economic conditions in the U.S. are worsening, and the federal spending cuts will only compound the problem. So says a new poll from The Hill.
Here is a "known known" for publishing this spring: The many aphorisms of former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld are coming out in book form.
Donald Rumsfeld served twice as U.S. secretary of defense, first under President Gerald R. Ford and more recently for President George W. Bush.
Is Donald Rumsfeld secretly advising the Obama Pentagon on force-planning issues? If the president's recently proposed force structure is any indication, the answer is yes. The Pentagon's plan, announced by Secretary of Defense Leon E. Panetta, will substantially reduce conventional military forces, especially ground forces, while placing more emphasis on special operations forces and armed unmanned aerial vehicles.
There are two schools of thought about the future of the People's Republic of China (PRC). The first is that the growing communist state will do anything to become the world's preeminent power, including use its military - the world's largest - to forcefully get its way. Beijing intends to dominate Asia, and it plans to push the United States aside to become the regional hegemon. The second, a more skeptical crowd, thinks China has too many challenges to pose a serious threat to America. In other words, don't worry about another Cold War any time soon.
Donald Rumsfeld may have left Washington, but his keen eye on world affairs remains instructive. President George W. Bush's defense secretary believes the Obama administration's missteps in Syria and Libya stem from a lack of leadership, absence of a clear mission and faulty coalition building.
A group of U.S. veterans who say they were raped and abused by their comrades want to force the Pentagon to change how it handles such cases.
The first roughly 300 pages of "Known and Unknown" cover Donald Rumsfeld's story up to his second term as secretary of defense, and general readers without a dog in the fight will find this part to be the book's most enjoyable and entertaining.
The latest idea for a real-life cameo on the CBS drama "The Good Wife" _ former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld _ has been nixed before it even got anywhere.
As of this writing, we are still awaiting a presidential executive order with guidelines for CIA interrogators and a legal opinion from the Office of Legal Counsel naming and authorizing the lawful techniques and telling us whether they comply with Common Article 3 of the Geneva Conventions to which we are a signatory and that the Supreme Court (Hamdan v. Rumsfeld, 2006) has told the United States it must honor.
"This note is to alert you folks that I know that I do not know whether or not my tax returns are accurate, which is a sad commentary on governance in our nation's capital," Mr. Rumsfeld, who served under Presidents Gerald Ford and George W. Bush, told the IRS.
