The Unknown Known

Two-time Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld is best known for his role in the U.S. response to September 11 and the Abu Ghraib torture scandal. But did you know he also co-sponsored the Freedom of Information Act and helped legalize Aspartame? Director Errol Morris delves into the sickly and the sweet, using the Rumsfeld’s own words to tell lesser-known tales.
