Casper Weinberger Remembered at Arlington Cemetery Funeral

Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld spoke at former Defense Secretary Casper Weinberger's funeral today.

Rumsfeld said the world should remember Weinberger as a peacemaker. "His goal was an era of hope and peace," the secretary said, "one in which the people of Eastern Europe lived in freedom, one in which the Berlin Wall no longer divided families, but instead existed only in memory or its shards sold as souvenirs of a discredited era.

"Today, we live in that world," Rumsfeld continued, "a world made safer and freer by Cold Warriors like Cap Weinberger."
