Rumsfeld Says He ‘Can’t Tell’ What Side Obama is on in War on Terror

Former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld told a gathering of conservatives in Los Angeles late last month that he “didn’t feel competent” to answer a question about whether President Obama “had switched sides in the war on terror,” a newly uncovered video reveals.

“I can’t tell,” he can be seen saying on the video, adding, “It bothers me greatly that he’s unwilling to identify the enemy. I don’t see how you win if you don’t.”

The video was discovered by former President Jimmy Carter’s grandson James Carter IV, a Democratic opposition researcher who is probably best known for finding the infamous Mitt Romney “47 percent” video that helped sink the 2012 Republican presidential nominee’s campaign.
