A gentlemanly rebuke ; Former National Security Czar points out a few foreign-policy considerations.

SPIEGEL Interview with Zbigniew Brzezinski: "Victory Would be a Fata Morgana" - International - SPIEGEL ONLINE - News:

"Brzezinski: ... It is a paradox: During the Cold War, our policy was directed at uniting our friends and dividing our enemies. Unfortunately our tactics today, including occasional Islamphobic language, have the tendency of unifying our enemies and alienating our friends."

A very polite rebuke, but all the more stinging for that, from a man with a pretty fair track record.

The interview is a foreign-policy must-read.
