Haas lets down his guard

hmm, well, granted Haass has been a vocal critic of Bush foreign policy ever since leaving the State Department, but this is surely not a good sign…

Haass, the former Bush aide who leads the Council on Foreign Relations, laughed at the president’s public optimism. “An opportunity?” Haass said with an incredulous tone. “Lord, spare me. I don’t laugh a lot. That’s the funniest thing I’ve heard in a long time. If this is an opportunity, what’s Iraq? A once-in-a-lifetime chance?”
