Senator John McCain gave a terse response on “Good Morning, America” to claims made in Donald Rumsfeld’s new book “Known and Unknown.” In the book, Rumsfeld had claimed McCain had a “hair-trigger temper” and “a propensity to shift his positions to appeal to the media.”
“I respect Secretary Rumsfeld,” McCain began by telling ABC’s George Stephanopoulos. “He and I had a very, very strong difference of opinion about the strategy that he was employing in Iraq, which I predicted was doomed to failure,” he continued. “Thank God he was relieved of his duties and we put the surge in. Otherwise, we would have had a disastrous defeat in Iraq,” McCain said.
