How will we remember Donald H. Rumsfeld? As “a ruthless little bastard” (as President Nixon once described him), who became Nixon’s anti-poverty czar despite voting against the very post’s creation as a congressman?

Or as a bungling Iraqi-war commandant and architect of “enhanced interrogation techniques” that led to the torture of prisoners of war at Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo Bay?  We will soon have a better idea, for Vulture hears exclusively that Errol Morris has gotten the two-time Secretary of Defense to sit for a lengthy series of interviews, which Morris aims to release later this year as a documentary feature film.
