Madeline Albright made a couple of stunning admissions in a speech at the University of Florida late last month. She claims the Iraq war is a bigger mistake than Viet Nam. But she also makes a pair of stunning admissions. She says
"The American forces are both the solution and the problem," she said. "They are like fly paper that attracts everybody who hates us."This is an admission that "fighting them there so we don't have to fight them here" is a valid strategy. She also said
This is one of the few admissions I can recall from the left side of the aisle that our principal adversary in Iraq for the last five years has been Iran. (You know the one who has been providing the weapons and money and direction to the insurgents to kill our soldiers there.)
"I think one might say that Iran has actually won the war in Iraq."
