Condi-plomacy: not sure if Kim Jong-il is sane
What was she thinking?
We know the guy’s a whack job, but is this kind of official public comment that will make the nuke-ready North Korean dictator come back to talks about his WMDs? Perhaps this is the foreshadowing of the kind of diplomacy someone like John Bolton would bring to the administration.
Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said on Monday she did not know whether North Korean leader Kim Jong-il was sane, a remark that could anger Pyongyang’s unpredictable ruler.
Asked if she thought Kim was sane during an interview with MSNBC’s “Hardball with Chris Matthews,” Rice replied: “I don’t know. I’ve never met the man.”
