Albright wants everyone to remember her as the last great Secretary of State:
[...] former U.S. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright said that through the war in Iraq, America has lost its moral authority, and it would be up to the next American president to restore the “goodness of American power.”
“I think that Iraq is going to go down in history as the greatest disaster in American foreign policy,” Albright said Thursday, with former U.S. President Jimmy Carter at her side in one of a series of “conversations at the Carter center.”
Carter said that since Albright’s tenure as secretary of state, “there has been a reduction almost all over the world in trust and esteem by foreigners toward Americans.”
That’s not all, guess where we get this news item today? The website of Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting (via MEMRI). These self-congratulating dummies have no idea what their words do to help the enemy. They can’t contain themselves, can’t understand how repeatedly hammering the idea that America is weak into the minds of our enemies could possibly be harmful to us, and they put our soldiers in even more immediate danger. Everyone knows you buy when stocks are low, and kick your enemy when they are down. Why must these public boobs constantly tell the radical Islamics “hey guys! we’re down, its a good time to kick!”?
Aside from all that, how absurd is it to see Albright sitting next to Carter speaking about moral authority? Remember this excerpt in Carter’s latest book that had so many up in arms:
It is imperative that the general Arab community and all significant Palestinian groups make it clear that they will end the suicide bombings and other acts of terrorism when international laws and the ultimate goals of the Roadmap for Peace are accepted by Israel.
Carter has since apologized, but can that apology erase what we perceived as his real feelings on the subject? This is who is preaching about “trust and esteem”. Don’t even get me started on Albright’s mismanagement of terrorism during her tenure as Sec. of State. Osama and Al Qaeda didn’t pop up out of nowhere, folks.
