Rumsfeld describes war in Afghanistan as big success

LONDON: Former US defence secretary Donald Rumsfeld has said the war in Afghanistan is “a big success.” In an interview billed as his first since leaving the top Pentagon post, Rumsfeld was quoted by British television Channel 4: “In Afghanistan, 28 million people are free. They have their own president, they have their own parliament. Improved a lot on the streets. While “that’s been a big success”, he said the Baghdad regime “has not been able to … create an environment hospitable to whatever one wants to call their evolving way of life, a democracy or a representative system, or a freer system. And it’s going to take some time and some effort”.-SANA
