OK… so I’m reading the NY Times this morning and I am struck by a remarkable thing. The leader of Iraq, Al Maliki, is summed up this way in a private memo, written by the U.S. Security Adviser, and leaked to the NY Times:
“His intentions seem good … and sensitive reporting suggests he is trying to … force positive change,” the memo said of the Iraqi leader. “But the reality on the streets of Baghdad suggests Maliki is either ignorant of what is going on, misrepresenting his intentions, or that his capabilities are not yet sufficient to turn his good intentions into action.”
Who amongst us does not work for a similar boss?
