… If Bush, having gathered previous secretaries of state and defense, had Madeline Albright arrested?
His predecessor, Madeleine K. Albright, a bit stirred up after hearing an exceedingly upbeat 40-minute briefing to 13 former secretaries of state and defense about how well things are going in Iraq, asked President Bush whether, with the war “taking up all the energy” of his foreign policy team, he had let the nuclear programs in Iran and North Korea spin out of control and allowed Latin America and China policy suffer by neglect.
Maybe he could have thrown in the journalist too. “Exceedingly upbeat”? You mean they didn’t have a death count marquee along the bottom of the video feed that presented the Iraqi ambassador?
