    President Bush should fire this woman. There is no place for language like this in our government.



    I hate all Iranians, US aide tells MPs

    By SIMON WALTERS - 29th September 2007

    Britsh 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.

    The six MPs were taken aback by the hardline approach of the Pentagon and in particular Ms Cagan, one of Mr Bush's foreign policy advisers.

    She made it clear that although the US had no plans to attack Iran, it did not rule out doing so if the Iranians ignored warnings not to develop a nuclear bomb.

    It was her tone when they met her on September 11 that shocked them most.

    The MPs say that at one point she said: "In any case, I hate all Iranians."

    ==If the account is true it is really, really sad and she certainly should be fired. I think one of the big problems in our country right now is leadership that makes decisions based on "feelings" and not "facts". It does not matter how we personally feel about any issue, what matters is the facts of the issue. If our leaders were more concerned about facts, we might not be in the mess we are in right now.

    Got a link?

    What do you think about the US Senators that continually attack the president, for purely political reasons?

    If I had my way, every Democrat and Republican now in Washington DC would be given a one way ticket to the North Pole to start a new colony. Then we can dismantle the two existing parties and start over.

    Actually, attacking someone for purely political reasons is the most honorable form of argument. Contrarily, "I hate all members of the Bush family just because because I do," would be an entirely different topic altogether.
