Donald Rumsfeld has written an "open letter" to the International Olympic Committee in defense of wrestling, which was cut from the Olympics starting in 2020. Rumsfeld, a wrestler in his youth, admits that he is "not without bias." But Rumsfeld should know better than anyone that you go to the Olympics with the sports you have, not the sports you want or wish to have.
