An interview with Rumsfeld

The interview on NPR's All Things Considered

I was quite intrigued by the exchange between Melissa Block and the Secretary of Defence.

At a critical point, he becomes animated. He points out that all of Melissa's questions have been somewhat pessimistic in tone. Listen yourself, and you'll see he was doing the audio version of a "close reading."

But it also seems that his growing animation prompted her to get more aggressive with her questions.

It was a fascinating exchange.
