Not all diplomats speak diplomatically

Wow.

US Assistant Secretary of State for European Affairs Elizabeth Jones was asked to comment on [Newt] Gingrich’s recent harsh criticism of her department’s Middle East diplomacy.

“Newt Gingrich does not speak in the name of the Pentagon and what he said is garbage,” US Assistant Secretary of State for European Affairs Elizabeth Jones told the Publico daily.

“What Gingrich says does not interest me. He is an idiot and you can publish that,” she added.

She should expect a visit from Dick Cheney’s goon squad any minute now. Too bad, we could use more of that kind of candor.
