Thanks to a link from Rich Lowry (of all people) we see that White House isn’t going to put any pressure on Condoleezza Rice to have a plan:
The vaguest diplomatic trip ever [Rich Lowry]
From Tony Snowâ€™s briefing today:
Q: Tony, what would Secretary Rice’s â€” the goal of a trip from the Secretary of State be, then? She’s not going to meet with anybody from Syria, Iran or Hezbollah, so what would a trip to the region do, in terms of getting it closer to the end of a crisis?
MR. SNOW: Well, we’re going to have to wait. Look, the Secretary’s going to go, but she’s not even sure when. I think â€” I’m going to kick the can down the road a little bit, Jim, because I think at this point, we do know, but â€” it is a legitimate question to ask precisely what she wants to do and accomplish, and I think it’s probably better left to when they figure out when they’re going to do it, we’ll be in a better position to announce precisely what it is she wants to do.
Translation: Weâ€™re giving Israel more time.
Nice to know that the Administration has a handle on things as we stand on the brink of World War Eye-Eye-Eye or Eye-Vee… depending on your neocon of choice.
Not that this hasn’t been noticed by a few from his party.
