Am avut privilegiul ca jurnalist sa-l intalnesc personal de 2 ori, sa-i strang mana si sa vorbesc cu el chiar cand conducea Departamentul Apararii al SUA. Avea ceva din sictirul unui actor faimos si din priceperea unui politician si om de stat de talie mondiala.

In 29 si 30 martie 2004, la Washington, am celebrat impreuna depunerea instrumentelor de ratificare din partea Romaniei a Tratatului de la Washington. Deveneam membri NATO si reveneam, in sfarsit, de partea buna a istoriei.

A venit apoi in Romania, la invitatia ministrului apararii de atunci Ioan Mircea Pascu, si a vizitat inclusiv Baza Aeriana Mihail Kogalniceanu. M-a remarcat acolo, mi-a strans mana si am schimbat cateva cuvinte.

Acestui politician de anvergura, un Republican conservator 100% diferit de looserii trumpisti & putinisti ai GOP de azi, Romania ii datoreaza intr-o masura importanta aderarea la NATO, petrecuta in mandatul sau de Secretar al Apararii 2000-2004, sub presedintia lui George W. Bush.

Thank you and rest in peace, Donald Rumsfeld !


I’ve met twice #DonaldRumsfeld, a privilege for me as a journalist. He was a hawk, with strong conservative views. And a Republican in total opposition with today lunatics from #GOP. #Romania owes so much to #DonaldRumsfeld for joining @NATO during his mandate as DoD chief.

RIP
