This is the Australian Minister of Defence's transcript of the conference. Note that 'defence' and 'defense' have different spelling sin the US and Australia. Go tool up your search functions and run them through the transcript.

This also gives you the full ext of a journalist asking about the intelligence-sharing problem, Hill not knowing about it, and Rumsfeld confirming it. General Cosgrove, our Chief of Defence Force, has since denied it.

One wonders, if intelligence is not being fully shared according to Rumsfeld, how Hill or Cosgrove would know. At the outset of the Pentagon conference Rumsfeld clearly did and Hill clearly did not.
