Arrogance and Stupidity

In an interview with Al-Jazeera, a senior U.S. diplomat acknowledges
that the U.S. acted with "arrogance" and "stupidity" in Iraq.

The State Department explanation: Bad translation of the interview.

Here's the relavant excerpt from the transcript:

"Of course, some historians, history will judge American history 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."

Stay the Course?

October 2006 Bush interview with George Stephanopoulos:

"STEPHANOPOULOS: Exactly what I wanted to ask you about, because James Baker said that he's looking for something between cut and run…

BUSH: Cut and run and.

STEPHANOPOULOS: … and stay the course.

BUSH: Well, listen, we've never been stay the course, George. We have been — we will complete the mission, we will do our job and help achieve the goal, but we're constantly adjusting the tactics, constantly."

Compare:


BUSH: We will stay the course. [8/30/06]

BUSH: We will stay the course, we will complete the job in Iraq.
[8/4/05]

BUSH: We will stay the course until the job is done, Steve. And
the temptation is to try to get the President or somebody to put a
timetable on the definition of getting the job done. We’re just going
to stay the course. [12/15/03]

BUSH: And my message today to those in Iraq is: We’ll stay the
course. [4/13/04]

BUSH: And that’s why we’re going to stay the course in Iraq. And
that’s why when we say something in Iraq, we’re going to do it.
[4/16/04]

BUSH: And so we’ve got tough action in Iraq. But we will stay the
course. [4/5/04]
