Donald Henry Rumsfeld Bio/Wiki, Net Worth, Married 2018

Donald Henry Rumsfeld (born July 9, 1932) is an American politician and businessman. Rumsfeld served as the 13th Secretary of Defense from 1975 to 1977 under President Gerald Ford, and as the 21st Secretary of Defense from 2001 to 2006 under President George W. Bush. He is both the youngest and the oldest person to have served as Secretary of Defense. Additionally, Rumsfeld was a four-term U.S. Congressman from Illinois (1962–1969), Director of the Office of Economic Opportunity (1969–1970), Counsellor to the President (1969–1973), the United States Permanent Representative to NATO (1973–1974), and White House Chief of Staff (1974–1975).Born in Illinois, Rumsfeld attended Princeton University, graduating in 1954 with a degree in political science. After serving in the Navy for three years, he mounted a campaign for Congress in Illinois' 13th Congressional District, winning in 1962 at the age of 30. He was a leading co-sponsor of the Freedom of Information Act. Rumsfeld reluctantly accepted an appointment by President Richard Nixon to head the Office of Economic Opportunity in 1969; appointed Counsellor by Nixon and entitled to Cabinet-level status, he would also head up the Economic Stabilization Program before being appointed Ambassador to NATO. Called back to Washington in August 1974, Rumsfeld was appointed Chief of Staff by President Ford, and soon successfully urged Ford to veto an expansion of the Freedom of Information Act, though the veto was easily overridden. Rumsfeld recruited a young one-time staffer of his, former Congressman Dick Cheney, to succeed him when Ford nominated him Secretary of Defense in 1975.When Ford lost the 1976 election, Rumsfeld returned to private business life, and was named president and CEO of the pharmaceutical corporation G. D. Searle & Company, during which time he led the legalization of Aspartame. He was later named CEO of General Instrument from 1990 to 1993, and chairman of Gilead Sciences from 1997 to 2001.Rumsfeld was recommended for the position of Defense Secretary by incoming Vice President Dick Cheney in late 2000, and was appointed in January 2001 by President George W. Bush. During his tenure, he was a leading neoconservative voice and one of the key individuals responsible for the restructuring of the military in the new 21st century. Rumsfeld was crucial in planning the United States' response to the September 11, 2001 attacks, which included two wars, one in Afghanistan and one in Iraq. In addition to war strategy, Rumsfeld's tenure became highly controversial for the Abu Ghraib torture and prisoner abuse scandal, as well as the use of enhanced interrogation techniques. Known in media circles for his outspokenness and candor, he gradually lost political support as the wars continued and resigned in late 2006. He has since published his autobiography Known and Unknown: A Memoir and Rumsfeld's Rules: Leadership Lessons in Business, Politics, War, and Life.

MoviesUncovered: The War on Iraq, 4
Star SignCancer
1[observation, 2015] The idea that we could fashion a democracy in Iraq seemed to me unrealistic.
2Nineteen hijackers, using commercial airliners as guided missiles to incinerate three thousand men, women and children, was perhaps the most horrific single unknown unknown America has experienced.
3When you say, 'How can you know?'. the answer is, you can't. Wouldn't it be wonderful if we could see around corners - have our imagination anticipate every conceivable thing that could happen, and then - from that full array and spectrum - pick out the ones that will happen?
4[at a press conference, April 11, 2003] Stuff happens. But it is a fundamental misunderstanding to see those images, over and over and over again, of some boy walking out with a vase and say, 'Oh, my goodness, you didn't have a plan'.
5[on the war in Iraq] I don't do quagmires.
6I think all of us have a sense if we imagine the kind of world we would face if the people who bombed the mess hall in Mosul, or the people who did the bombing in Spain, or the people who attacked the United States in New York, shot down the plane over Pennsylvania and attacked the Pentagon, the people who cut off peoples' heads on television to intimidate, to frighten indeed the word 'terrorized' is just that. Its purpose is to terrorize, to alter behavior, to make people be something other than that which they want to be.
7My family originates from northern Germany. People there are well known for their direct and clear manner of speaking.
8We acted in Iraq because we saw the evidence in a dramatic new light - through the prism of our experience on 9/11.
9Reports that say something hasn't happened are always interesting to me because, as we know, there are known knowns - there are things we know we know. We also know there are known unknowns - that is to say we know there are some things we do not know. But there are also unknown unknowns - the ones we don't know we don't know.
10(In response to a reporter asking him why he is wearing a suit and tie at a press conference held at President Bush's ranch) "I don't own any casual clothes. Next question, please."
1Son of George Donald Rumsfeld (b. Illinois, 10 October 1904, d. September 1974), who worked on Real Estate, and wife Jeannette Huster (b. Illinois, 27 May 1903, d. 3 May 1988).
2Met Elvis Presley in Las Vegas in backstage with Sammy Davis Jr..
3Resigned as Secretary of Defense on November 6, 2006. His resignation was announced by President George W. Bush on November 8, 2006.
4His ancestors come from a little town named Weyhe, located a little south of Bremen in Germany.
5Having served as Secretary of Defense under both Gerald Ford (he was also chief of staff to that president in the mid-1970s) and 'George W. Bush', Donald Rumsfeld has the distinction of being both the youngest and the oldest Defense Secretary in U.S. history.
6Rumsfeld was once the All-Navy Wrestling Champion.
7Served as U.S. Ambassador to NATO (1973-1974)
8Was U.S. Congressman from Illinois (1963-1969)
9U.S. Secretary of Defense under President George W. Bush (2001-2006); previously served in that position from 1975-1977 under President Gerald Ford.
