Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld says the Pentagon's decision on when to bring U.S. troops home from Iraq will be dictated in part by that country's security situation. Rumsfeld has been under intense criticism for the costs and duration of operations in Iraq, and for the mistreatment of detainees held by U.S. forces. Rumsfeld speaks with NPR's Juan Williams.
