Then-Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld wrote: “Aware of the public’s impatience [in responding to the 9/11 attacks], I urged the President [Bush] to try to adjust the American people’s expectations away from quick, decisive results. [On September 19, 2001] I stressed that the war on terrorism would be ‘a marathon, not a sprint.’ ”
