More Than One Child Left Behind

Quote from today's NYT:

Rice Admits U.S. Underestimated Hamas Strength

Published: January 30, 2006
LONDON, Jan. 29 — Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice acknowledged Sunday that the United States had failed to understand the depth of hostility among Palestinians toward their longtime leaders. The hostility led to an election victory by the militant group Hamas that has reduced to tatters crucial assumptions underlying American policies and hopes in the Middle East.

"I've asked why nobody saw it coming," Ms. Rice said, speaking of her own staff. "It does say something about us not having a good enough pulse."

Geez, folks, there's been a lot of that going around. Get your shiite together. Think we like being El Unido Estupido? Seems like the CIA search engine is populated with low intelligence people from the "More Than One Child Left Behind" group. And instead of blaming it all on your staff, Ms. Rice, why not take some personal responsibility for looking at the Middle East another way, instead of through the introverted nearsighted lens of your own American cultural experience.
