Former two-time Secretary of Defense
Donald Rumsfeld says he doesn't know about gay marriage.
The 80-year-old Rumsfeld made his
remarks during an appearance on Larry King Now.
After Rumsfeld told King that he
supported repeal of “Don't Ask, Don't Tell,” King asked: “Do
you support same-sex marriage?”
“You know, I'm, I guess, of a
generation that I don't … I listened to some of the Supreme Court
justices. And one of them said, 'Well what's next after that? Is it
two people, three people?'” he said.
“But you were a strong supporter of
civil rights in Congress ...”
“You bet I was,” Rumsfeld said.
“And I was proud of the work that the Congress did in the 1964
legislation and the 1965 legislation.”
“I guess I just don't equate the two.
It's not a subject I'm knowledgeable about. I guess the Rumsfeld
rule here is: I don't know.” (The video is embedded on this page.
