ABSTRACT
The article criticizes the actions of U.S. Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld in line with the Iraq war and war against terrorism. On October 16, 2003, Rumsfeld wrote a memo titled Global War on Terrorism that was quickly leaked to reporters. Rumsfeld insisted that he had not leaked the memo himself. But it is widely believed that he was content to see it disclosed, the debate is much more about why. One officer explained that Rumsfeld wanted to make it clear that he didn't really believe his own rhetoric.
