Memo Blasts State Dept. Iraq Effort

In a confidential memo, a long-time Republican operative who has served in the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad for the past year says the State Department’s efforts in Iraq are so poorly managed they “would be considered willfully negligent if not criminal” if done in the private sector.

“We have brought to Iraq the worst of America — our bureaucrats,” writes Manuel Miranda in the memo, which was addressed to U.S. Ambassador Ryan Crocker and cc’d to “ALCON” or “all concerned” at the State Department.
