US Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld—the mesmerizing figure who oversaw the US Army, Navy, Airforce, and Marines—is in the news everyday, widely blamed for the catastrophic state of Iraq. In October 2006 Rumsfeld was sacked, his disastrous running of the war in Iraq being held responsible for the American public’s loss of faith in the Bush administration. In this groundbreaking book, Washington insider Andrew Cockburn reveals that Rumsfeld’s political legacy stretches back decades and speculates as to where his career might take him now.
Drawing on sources that include Rumsfeld’s inner circle as well as high-ranking officials in the Pentagon and White House, Rumsfeld, going far beyond previous accounts, reveals its subject in his true colours—as a man consumed with the urge to dominate each and every human encounter, and whose ambition has long been matched by his inability to display genuine leadership or accept responsibility. The book demolishes the notion that he has been a forceful and effective manager driven to transform the military, and intimately details Rumsfeld’s all-important relationships to Bush and Cheney, and how it affects the wars that the USA and the UK are fighting today in Iraq and Afghanistan.
