WASHINGTON — The “war on terror” prison at the US naval base in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba is “one of the finest prison systems in the world,” former defense secretary Donald Rumsfeld said in an interview with Fox News on Tuesday.
Rumsfeld, who is promoting his autobiography titled “Known and Unknown,” praised US military personnel that worked at the site in the interview on FOX News Channel’s Hannity show.
Rumsfeld was defense secretary 2001-2006 under former president George W. Bush. He was replaced as defense secretary by Robert Gates.
