As posted on Kos today, I found this comment from outgoing Deputy Secretary of State Richard Armitage very interesting. How strange for a member of this Republican administration to show concern at how the US treats the rest of the world. The next magical logical leap they need to make is that their current strategies breed more terrorism, not less.
Anyways, here’s his quote:
“The biggest regret is that we didn’t stop 9/11. And then in the wake of 9/11, instead of redoubling what is our traditional export of hope and optimism we exported our fear and our anger. And presented a very intense and angry face to the world. I regret that a lot.”
