Promote this man

Someone in the adminstration has finally admitted that the emperor has no clothes. Alberto Fernandez, director of public diplomacy in the Bureau of Near Eastern Affairs at the State Department, made the following remarks late yesterday:

"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.
"We are witnessing failure in Iraq and that's not the failure of the United States alone but it is a disaster for the region. Failure in Iraq will be a failure for the United States but a disaster for the region."
Naturally, someone else in the administration soon refuted these comments, but at least it's a start. I strongly believe that honesty, courage and diplomacy are all needed to begin to unravel the Iraq disaster and to start to restore our broken relationships with other nations.
