Diplomat: U.S. Arrogant, Stupid in Iraq
(CNN) -- A senior U.S. State Department diplomat told Arab satellite network Al Jazeera that there is a strong possibility history will show the United States displayed "arrogance" and "stupidity" in its handling of the Iraq war.
Alberto Fernandez, director of the Office of Press and Public Diplomacy in the Bureau of Near East Affairs, made his comments on Saturday to the Qatar-based network.
"History will decide what role the United States played," he told Al Jazeera in Arabic, based on CNN translations. "And God willing, we tried to do our best in Iraq."
"But I think there is a big possibility ... for extreme criticism and because undoubtedly there was arrogance and stupidity from the United States in Iraq," the diplomat told Al Jazeera. Did this nitwit forget to take his medication? It's not that there are Islamic lunatic gangs of killers roaming the streets. Its not that CNN collaborates with the enemy, as with the sniper video. No. It's because America is "arrogant" and "stupid." I am typing this before breakfast on Sunday. Could someone please go into the State Department and fire this asshole before lunch? We've got a lot to do today and it will probably take longer than we expect because we're so "stupid."
