“On November 15 [2002], Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld assured Americans that if there were a war with Iraq, it would be a short one. ‘The idea that it’s going to be a long, long, long battle of some kind I think is belied by the fact of what happened in 1990,’ he said on a radio call-in program. ‘Five days or five weeks or five months, but it certainly isn’t going to last any longer than that,’ he said.”
