Madeleine Albright: "We Created More Terrorists… Our Soldiers Are the Problem"

Albright says that the War in Iraq is the biggest disaster ever.

Of course… This is the same person who said that 500,000 dead Iraqi children was worth it:

“It’s a hard choice but we think the price is worth it.”
…With democrats sometimes genocide is OK.

In her latest attack on the United States, the military and President Bush, Madeleine Albright blamed the US for creating more terrorists and said that our soldiers were the problem in Iraq.

Because it is our fault that the terrorists hate us, you know.
The Gainesville Sun reported:


Calling the invasion of Iraq possibly the worst foreign policy blunder in American history, former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright gave a bleak assessment of the state of world affairs before a University of Florida audience Wednesday.

“I have said that I’m afraid that Iraq is going to go down in history as the greatest disaster in American foreign policy,” Albright said. “Now that’s quite a statement, because it means I think it’s worse than Vietnam – not in the number of Americans who died or Vietnamese versus Iraqis, but in terms of those unintended consequences. And the biggest unintended consequence in Iraq is Iran. I think one might say that Iran has actually won the war in Iraq.”

Looking toward Afghanistan, Albright said things aren’t much brighter.

“President (Hamid) Karzai of Afghanistan is a very fine man, but he’s basically mayor of Kabul,” she said. “He does not control the whole place.”

Albright gave two presentations at UF, first at the Levin College of Law and then at the Graham Center for Public Service. She fielded questions about foreign policy from both audiences, and in an interview with reporters afterward she commented on the race for the Democratic presidential nomination.

…”The American forces are both the solution and the problem,” she said. “They are like fly paper that attracts everybody who hates us.”

Does she mean our soldiers are attracting terrorists like this?

This shows that all of those terrorists our troops are attracting are not doing so well.
What is Albright talking about exactly?
Let’s hope that she was asked some serious questions after her silly commentary.
It’s frightening that she was once Secretary of State– but it does put the Clinton years into perspective.
