Donald Rumsfeld Interview

Lee Smith has an interesting account in the Weekly Standard of David Samuels' interviews with Donald Rumsfeld.
What seems to bother Rumsfeld most is his sense that America is a country in steep decline – which is a word that he used more than once. While he thinks that Obama’s Syria policy is a fig leaf for a disaster, he actually seemed less focused on specific policy choices than on his sense that the socio-economic foundation of American power is disintegrating. Without sustained American economic strength, neither American threats nor American offers of friendship are likely to carry much weight with the rest of the world.

It's worth a read. Clearly Rumsfeld has a low opinion of President Obama, and not happy about President Bush's approach to Islamism.
