"Former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld isn't letting go of his talking points that support the U.S. invasion of Iraq following the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. Exactly 10 years after those attacks, Rumsfeld suggested to CNN's Fareed Zakaria Sunday that Iraq had been 'hospitable' to al Qaeda before the U.S. invaded the country. 'There's no question that al Qaeda and Zarqawi and people were in Iraq,' Rumsfeld argued. 'They aggregated there.' ... 'If we hadn't invaded, they wouldn't have been there,' Zakaria pointed out."
