So imagine my surprise when an anonymous commenter pointed out this post. A retired (anonymous, tsk) diplomat, according to Cole, sent him the note excerpted below:
'The willingness of Secretary Rice, or Dr. Ferragamo as she is known on one satirical website, to continue supporting this war of occupation through this “embassy” and more broadly through her declaration of a new order known as “transformational diplomacy” simply confirms that she is not a “moderate” voice for diplomacy against the likes of Dick Cheney. Diplomats do not “transform” other countries. They represent the interests of the US to the governments and citizens of other, independent, countries.'
LOL! A "retired diplomat", eh? Oh, Madeleine, don't be coy! Or is that you, Warren?
