A twenty year veteran of the State Department has resigned in protest over the current course of US foreign policy, and his letter of resignation was published in yesterday’s New York Times. It’s yet another scathing critique of this administration’s foreign policy, which seems to revolve around either pissing off or ignoring every other country in the world. The “diplomacy only works at the end of a bayonet” conservatives will probably be pleased that this person no longer represents our country.

Update: I removed the “Saddam-loving” above because the irony intended was not clear enough. It was meant at a barb at those who see diplomacy as a guaranteed failure.
