Stephen Colbert grilled Donald Rumsfeld over the decisions — and dishonesty — that pushed the United States into the disastrous war in Iraq. The “Late Show” host said he thought it was unfair to ask Rumsfeld and other former Bush administration officials if they would invade Iraq if they knew then what they know now about Saddam Hussein’s weapons of mass destruction. “You only knew then what you knew then, (and) you only know now what you know now,” Colbert said. “Our now is tomorrow’s then.” Rumsfeld seemed relieved that he would not ask that, but Colbert still made the former Secretary of Defense squirm with an arguably tougher question.
