In this clip, first published on The Daily Beast, Rumsfeld is grilled by Morris on why the Bush administration attempted to lead Americans to believe that there was a link between Saddam Hussein and the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.

“It was very clear that the direct planning for 9/11 was done by Osama bin Laden’s people, al Qaeda, and in Afghanistan," replied Rumsfeld. "I don’t think the American people were confused about that.”

Morris then notes that in a 2003 Washington Post poll, 69% of Americans responded that they believed that Saddam Hussein was personally involved in the attacks.
