Jon Stewart Jokingly Accepts Apology From Donald Rumsfeld for Iraq War

Last night, former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld stopped by the Daily Show as part of his national book tour. Although the interview was mostly cordial, Jon Stewart did trade a few zingers with Rumsfeld. Perhaps the funniest and most poignant moment was at the beginning of the interview, when Stewart told Rumsfeld, "I think I know why you're here. Let me just deflate the tension right off the bat: apology accepted."
