Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld testified before the Senate and House Armed Services committees on May 7, 2004, regarding the prisoner abuse at Abu Ghraib in Iraq. He recalled, “I opened my testimony by raising the question of who bore responsibility for what had taken place. ‘These events occurred on my watch,’ I said. ‘As Secretary of Defense, I am accountable for them. I take full responsibility.’ ”
