ABSTRACT
The article discusses former U.S. Defense secretary Donald Rumsfeld's criticism against Lewis Paul Bremer III, former civil administrator of Iraq and career diplomat. In his memoir, "Known and Unknown," Rumsfeld portrayed Bremer as a pompous viceroy who defied his and President George Bush's plans to withdraw U.S. forces from Iraq and hand over authority to the Iraqis. Based on several government memos, both the White House and the Pentagon approved Bremer's scheme for remaking Iraq.
