A confrontation with the man behind the US invasion of Iraq

Next to George W. Bush and Dick Cheney, then-secretary of defense Donald Rumsfeld was the most central figure behind the US invasion of Iraq in 2003. After confirming that the weapons of mass destruction that the Bush administration had based their justification on were nowhere to be found, the war gradually settled into a pointless routine which cost more human lives and more money than anybody had ever imagined. In his new documentary, Errol Morris confronts Rumsfeld with his obtuse and impenetrable rhetoric of war - but the veteran politician is ever evasive.
