Donald Rumsfeld, the former defense secretary who led the Pentagon when the U.S. launched wars against Iraq and Afghanistan, has died at the age of 88, his family announced Wednesday.

Rumsfeld, who ran the Pentagon for former President George W. Bush and lost his job a day after Republicans lost the House majority in 2006, died surrounded by his family in New Mexico, according to a statement.

“It is with deep sadness that we share the news of the passing of Donald Rumsfeld, an American statesman and devoted husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather,” his family said.
