In his book that's coming out tomorrow says that Bush asked him to work on plans for invading Iraq just 15 days after 9-11 and that he was more interested in Iraq than Afghanistan. Rumsfeld blames Bremer for the mistake of not getting out of Iraq soon after the invasion.
"Just 15 days after the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, President George W. Bush invited his defense secretary, Donald H. Rumsfeld, to meet with him alone in the Oval Office. According to Mr. Rumsfeld’s new memoir, the president leaned back in his leather chair and ordered a review and revision of war plans — but not for Afghanistan, where the Qaeda attacks on New York and Washington had been planned and where American retaliation was imminent."
