Secretary of Defense Donald “Rumsfeld flew to Iraq on April 30 [2003]. …Rumsfeld videotaped an optimistic message to be broadcast to the Iraqis from the military’s Commando Solo psychological operations aircraft: ‘Let me be clear: Iraq belongs to you. We do not want to own or run it,’ Rumsfeld said. ‘…We will stay as long as necessary to help you do that–and not a day longer.’ ”
