British MPs visiting the Pentagon to discuss America's stance on Iran and Iraq were shocked to be told by one of President Bush's senior women officials: "I hate all Iranians."
And she also accused Britain of "dismantling" the Anglo-US-led coalition in Iraq by pulling troops out of Basra too soon.
The all-party group of MPs say Debra Cagan, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Coalition Affairs to Defence Secretary Robert Gates, made the comments this month.
Now, my mother always told me that it's not nice to make fun of people whose faculties are clearly impaired, but seriously, why does she have to make it so hard? I mean, who wears German crosses as a fashion statement? Is it me, or is the Bush Administration just begging for the Godwin allusions now?
