April 9, 2003 - Secretary of Defense, Donald Rumsfeld shows a rare smile since the start of Operation Iraqi Freedom began on March 24, 2003.  During his opening remarks during today's daily Pentagon press briefing he stated, "Saddam Hussein is now taking his rightful place alongside Hitler, Stalin, Lenin, Ceausescu in the pantheon of failed, brutal dictators, and the Iraqi people are well on their way to freedom."
