Former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld helped organize Rick Perry's foreign policy and national security briefing in Austin last Wednesday, Rumsfeld's staff confirmed today.
Perry's aides have been tight-lipped about the gathering, which National Review reported included former Rumsfeld aides Doug Feith, Daniel Fata, and William Luti, as well as the magazine's Andrew McCarthy and others . But I'm told Rumsfeld helped steer Perry's staff to the low-key advisory group, and his detainee adviser Cully Stimson was also invited, but couldn't attend.
Earlier last week, Perry also dove into the foreign policy circle by holding a one-on-one meeting with former Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf. The meeting was requested on Musharraf’s behalf to discuss Perry’s success creating jobs in Texas.
