Rumsfeld: Iraqis, Not Americans, Will Defeat Insurgency
The Iraqi people, not U.S.-led forces, will defeat the country's insurgency, Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld says. He also says the U.S. military is working to reduce the size of its forces in Iraq. He says in an NPR interview that it has taken six to eight years to put down major insurgencies elsewhere, and the challenge is to get most U.S troops out of Iraq much sooner than that.
