Diplomat Cites U.S. ‘Stupidity’ in Iraq

ABC News
Excerpt
BAGHDAD, Iraq Oct 22, 2006 (AP)— A senior U.S. diplomat said the United States had shown “arrogance” and “stupidity” in Iraq but was now ready to talk with any group except Al-Qaida in Iraq to facilitate national reconciliation.

In an interview with Al-Jazeera television aired late Saturday, Alberto Fernandez, director of public diplomacy in the Bureau of Near Eastern Affairs at the State Department offered an unusually candid assessment of America’s war in Iraq.

“We tried to do our best but I think there is much room for criticism because, undoubtedly, there was arrogance and there was stupidity from the United States in Iraq,” he said.

H.L.s Take
Everyone knows what a quagmire it is, even Bush, but he can’t leave, because how would they keep stealing everything over there that isn’t bolted down??

    They should have been talking to everyone to begin with. It’s quite possible that Iraq can’t be governed as a whole. Maybe they should start looking to split up the country in to the north, east and west. Give the Shite, Sunni and Kurds their own country, as it is becoming more clear they cannot all get along.

  2. LA Says:

    Wrong Tony. Iraq was one country until the US and Israel f**ked it up. Consider the neocons and where their master is. What policy did they create? It certainly isn’t mine.

    Splitting Iraq will not solve the problem The solution is get the US and Israel out of Iraq now. Peace will follow.

    LA you better find a book and start reading because you have just showen how stupid you are. Iraq was screwed up before we got there. That’s why Saddam is in court right now. Killing his own people by the 1000’s. Not to mention that he would not let the inspectors in to do their job. If there wasn’t anything there than why wouldn’t he let the weapons inspectors in? Right the US and Israel screwed it up. Try to lie to people that don’t know because they are the only ones you might be able to convince of that.

  4. LA Says:

    Bill, you mention a book. What book? Cite a source, will already? You spew BS and never back it up.

    You say Iraq was screwed up? Now that is a STUPID statement. Check the facts out. You say Saddam killed people by the 1000s. Really? Cite your source for that evidence. I’m sick and tired hearing your baseless claims. That’s the same line Republicans and Democrats used before launching a war on Iraq. But it turns out to be a fiction.

    You probably think the Saddam had nukes in his front pocket!!

    What are you, some kind of propagandist? You sure sound like one!

    The inspectors, geez. My research shows that the US pressured the inspectors out of Iraq because they found no evidence of any WMDs or Bush claims. Therefore, that would have destroyed Bush’s and the neocons’ claims.

    Yes, Israel drives US policy in the Middle East. Everyone in the world seems to know that except you. Why?

    Wake up dude, you’re living in the past.

  5. LA Says:

    BTW Bill, am I stupid for including Israel in the equation here? Is that the real issue for you? If it is, then pick up plane ticket and join the IDF. I love my country and the US is always first in my heart. For you that equate US policy with Israeli policy, you are selling out my country.

  6. Buck Says:

    That is right! America is first in your heart. To prove this you talk bad about America all the time. Love, hate, love, hate, love hate! ha ha ha ha ha ha!!!
