Condi’s Middle East Scrapbook: The January ‘07 Inserts

Rice-Book-Mazzan

“We’re not yet at the point where I think we can determine what we would do about formal negotiations, when and if (they can occur).”

– Condi Rice (1/18/06)

”The whole jet-setting trip turned out to be yet another stage-managed, futile diplomatic exercise.”



–Peninsula newspaper editorial, Qatar (via NYT)

Could somebody please tell me what Condi’s latest Middle East diplomacy trip show debacle cost the tax payers (if only in dollars)?  It’s gracious of the NYT to refer to the Secretary’s Middle East strategy in terms of a “loose agenda.” Otherwise, they might have tried: unintelligible.

For another interpretative mix of visual and verbal, my tribute to the late, great Art Buchwald, and a look at what Condi brought back from her visit to Israel, check out The BAG’s companion piece today at Huffington Post.

… Oh, and here are the rest of the scrapbook pages The BAG obtained….  (As usual, help yourself to the visual dynamics.)
