Summary
Donald Rumsfeld's "war crime," says Oscar-winning filmmaker Errol Morris, is "the gobbledygook, the blizzard of words, the misdirections, the evasions...and ultimately at the heart of it all...the disregard and devaluation of evidence." The former Secretary of Defense's complicated relationship with the truth is the subject of Morris' new documentary, "The Unknown Known," an extended conversation with Rumsfeld that focuses on his role in leading U.S. military forces into Iraq. This interview with Morris also covers Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara, whose relationship with his past is the subject of Morris' film, "The Fog of War;" Morris' take on the Jeffrey MacDonald murder case, which was the subject of his book, "A Wilderness of Error;" how President Obama compares to President Bush; his friendships with Roger Ebert and Werner Herzog; and why "we're all morons"
