This evening "Piers Morgan Tonight" welcomed back former U.S. Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld for his third visit to the primetime program.
Joining host Piers Morgan for a live interview, Rumsfeld shared his candid perspective on the relationship between the United States and Israel, and how it might impact the latter taking military action against Iran:
"I was asked the question: 'Do I think that the Israelis would contact the United States government if they planned to engage in an attack on Iran,' and my response was 'I think they would be very careful about doing that for fear that it would leak out of the administration.'"
In response to the suggestion that the host misrepresented the guests' stance, Morgan attempts to clarify:
"Just to defend my own position," he began.
"It's indefensible!" came Rumsfeld's response.
"I set this up by saying that you basically did not believe that the Israeli administration could trust the Obama administration," insists Morgan.
"Not so," declares the guest. "If you go back and read the transcript of what you said at the end of the last segment, I think you'll find it is quite different."
And with that, the "Piers Morgan Tonight" host pushed forward:
"Let's agree to disagree."
Watch the clip, and listen to the interview, as America's 13th and 21st Secretary of Defense further explains his thoughts on the current administration, and past intelligence leaks.
