an inconvenient truth

Alberto Fernandez, a senior state department official recently partipated in an interview with Al-Jazeera where he admitted: "I think there is great room for strong criticism, because without doubt, there was arrogance and stupidity by the United States in Iraq." One opinion is that Fernandez's comments might generate a certain amount of goodwill in the Middle East since that is what most of the people think anyway. Let's hope his employers see it the same way.

I can't imagine he will be able to remain on in his position after this. I admire his courage to speak the truth in public.

agreed. If he does I'm positive he won't be getting near a camera in any official capacity again.
