Perry’s Office Sought Rumsfeld’s Advice on National Security Meetings

by Katrina Trinko

Last week, I reported that Rick Perry had met with some former Bush administration officials, including Doug Feith and William Luti, to discuss national security matters. (Perry also met with NR’s own Andy McCarthy.) Today Politico reports that Rick Perry’s staff reached out to former defense secretary Donald Rumsfeld for suggestions about who Perry should meet, although Rumsfeld himself has not had any recent contact with Perry.
