The State Department official in charge of public diplomacy for the Middle East apologized Sunday for telling the Arabic language Al-Jazeera television station that the U.S. had displayed "arrogance and stupidity" in Iraq.

............

"Upon reading the transcript of my appearance on Al-Jazeera, I realized that I seriously misspoke by using the phrase 'there has been arrogance and stupidity' by the U.S. in Iraq," Fernandez said in the statement. "This represents neither my views nor those of the State Department. I apologize."

1. Too late Mr. Fernandez. CNN poll says 86% of people
agreed with the "stupidity". (Yesterdays poll on CNN)

2. How demoralizing it must be to be a career diplomat during...
...the dark age of an administration like this one.
