Rumsfeld Says Obama Hasn't Justified Syria Attack

Former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, "who ushered the U.S. into wars in Afghanistan and Iraq in 2001 and 2003, said the Obama administration has not clearly justified an attack on Syria," The Hill reports.

Said Rumsfeld: "One thing that is very interesting, it seems to me, is that there really hasn't been any indication from the administration as to what our national interest is with respect to this particular situation."

However, in an interview with the Newhour, Obama cited "America's core self-interest" as one justification.
