Guardian: Donald Rumsfeld’s memoir up against satirical unknowns

Benedicte Page, Donald Rumsfeld’s memoir up against satirical unknowns, Guardian (UK), Jan. 11, 2011, at 22.

When it comes to telling the story of Donald Rumsfeld’s life, facts have often seemed stranger than fiction. And now readers will be given the choice between the two, when a novel depicting the abduction of the former US defence secretary is published next month – on the same day as his own political memoir.

Rumsfeld’s book Known and Unknown is out in America on 8 February, and is said by publisher Penguin to “pull no punches” in its inside look at the Bush administration, 9/11 and the Iraq war.

Its title refers to the infamous comment, criticised by many as gobbledegook, the defence secretary made at a 2002 Nato press conference concerning the absence of evidence that Iraq was supplying terrorists with weapons of mass destruction.
