Donald Rumsfeld‘s brief detente with Al Jazeera appears to be over.
Just last month Rumsfeld was singing the praises of Al Jazeera anchor David Frost.
However, during an interview yesterday with with Al Jazeera English Washington bureau chief Abderrahim Foukara things got downright cold.
Foukara’s questions about the Iraq War and whether Rumsfeld personally felt responsible for the loss of lives because the didn’t secure the border did not sit well with the former defence secretary.
“You keep making assertions which are fundamentally false,” said Rumsfeld.
Correct me, responded Foukara.
“Do you want to yell or do you want to have an interview?” said Rumsfeld, “You’re being true to form…You’re not being respectful, you just talking, over and over and over repeating yourself.”
Foukara: “You just disparaged me as a member of Al Jazeera, but that’s OK. Just give me a straight answer.”
Rumsfled: “This is worthless! You’re haranguing.”
