New Trier asked to rethink Rumsfeld honor

December 14, 2010 (CHICAGO)

The Chicago Tribune reports former defense secretary Donald Rumsfeld was chosen to receive the school's alumni achievement award and hall of honor.

But a former school board member and a student asked the school to reconsider.

They claim the award is inappropriate because of Rumsfeld's incorrect statements about weapons of mass destruction in Iraq.
