During a wide-ranging and insightful sit-down with Greta Van Susteren yesterday, former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld learned of President Obama Wednesday morning statement about “red lines” in Syria. Obama declared in Sweden yesterday that he never set a red line on American action in Syria, arguing that the international community set a red line on chemical weapons use long ago.

Rumsfeld, asked about the comment by Greta, was stunned, having not yet heard the remarks.

“You’re kidding, I did not see that,” he said.

Convinced by Greta that Obama had indeed made the curious comments, Rumsfeld then had some harsh words for the president.

“This president has tried to blame everybody or anybody, for everything. And leadership requires that you stand up, take a position, provide clarity, and take responsibility. I can’t imagine him saying that he didn’t draw the red line. He did draw a red line. We have ears!” he declared.
