Sen. Chuck Hagel, a leading Republican lawmaker who has come out against the Iraq war, had some harsh words for the Bush White House Wednesday, calling it "one of the most arrogant" administrations he's ever seen.
Guess whose phone is probably about to be tapped. But I digress:
"I would rate this one the lowest in capacity, in capability, in policy, in consensus -- almost every area, I would give it the lowest grade," Hagel said during an event at the Council on Foreign Relations in New York.
Heavens! He sounds just like a U.S. Nobel Laureate!
"I think of this administration, what they could have done after 9/11, what was within their grasp," he said. "Every poll in the world showed 90 percent of the world for us. Iran had some of the first spontaneous demonstrations on the streets of Tehran supporting America."
