Biplomat Calls it Like He Sees It

While the President met with key architects and implementers of his Iraq policy with little inclination for major changes, a member of the Bush team called his boss’s efforts in that same country “arrogant” and “stupid”. Alberto Fernandez, director of public diplomacy in the Bureau of Near Eastern Affairs of the State Department used those adjectives to describe the United States effort in Iraq during an Al-Jazeera interview. My guess is he didn’t count on the U.S. media picking it up just weeks before an election.

Bush stupid and arrogant? I’ve thought that for a long time, but to hear it from one of his key State Department employees, now that’s refreshing. Time to throw out his stupid and arrogant cohorts in Congress…
