Rumsfeld: Mistakes Were ‘Possible’

You’ll have to water board Donald Rumsfeld if you want to get an apology out of him: Asked about President Bush’s statement that cutting troop levels in Iraq was the greatest failure of the war, former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld tells Diane Sawyer, “"I don't have enough confidence to say that that's right. I think that it's possible. We had [an] enormous number of troops ready to go in.” Rumsfeld sent about 100,000 fewer troops to Iraq than the military originally requested. Rumsfeld’s memoir, Known and Unknown, publishes Tuesday.
