Former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld was caught shocked on-camera after learning during an interview that President Barack Obama had denied drawing a “red line” on Syria.
During her interview, Fox News host Greta Van Susteren highlighted Obama’s Wednesday statement that he didn’t alone draw a “red line.”
“He did draw it!” Rumsfeld interjected.
“I’m just telling you what he said,” Van Susteren replied.
“You’re kidding,” he said. “I didn’t see that.”
“This president has tried to blame everybody or anybody, for everything,” Rumsfeld continued. “And leadership requires that you stand up, take a position, provide clarity, and take responsibility. I can’t imagine him saying that he didn’t draw the red line. He did draw a red line. We have ears!”
