State Dept. tool Alberto al-Fernandez on al Jazeera

Andy McCarthy weighs in on Alberto al-Fernandez:

State’s assessment from the senior diplomat responsible for conveying our position: The U.S. is arrogant and stupid, and what we need to pursue is the chatter course preferred by the Iraqi government. And, yes, that would be the same government whose thoroughly ineffective, Hezbollah-supporting, Iran apologist of a leader, Nouri al-Maliki, can’t or won’t crack down on Shiite militias — particularly the one led by his political ally, Muqtada al-Sadr, who may now outpace al Qaeda and disgruntled Baathists among Iraq’s countless destabilizers…

…Have mistakes been made in Iraq? Unquestionably. But the one thing those mistakes have surely not involved is insufficient deference to Muslim sensibilities. Indeed, the opposite is true. The administration is now paying dearly for subordinating military success against our enemies — militant Islam and its abettors in Iran and elsewhere — to political accommodations in pursuit of its Holy Grail of rapid democratic transformation in a land hostile to Western values.

That is not arrogance. It is hope borne of exuberance, however naïve it may be.

What clearly is stupidity, though, is having Alberto Fernandez as the public face of American diplomacy.
