Iraq War Watch: United States State Department’s Alberto Fernandez Receives Award for “Integrity, Courage, [and] Sensitivity”

Alberto Fernandez

Remember this MORON?

Remember that Flap said Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice needs to bring Fernandez in for a WOODSHED TALK.

So, what does the United States State Depatment do?

Fox News: Public Praise

Remember Alberto Fernandez? The State Department press officer was forced to apologize last month after telling Al Jazeera that the U.S. had shown “arrogance” and “stupidity” in Iraq.

Well after a month of silence, the State Department is finally speaking out on Fernandez — not to condemn him, but to praise his “integrity, courage, [and] sensitivity.”

Fernandez was selected from three department nominees for the Edward R. Murrow Award for Excellence in Public Diplomacy by Tufts University… for his work with pan-Arab media … to increase the number of appearances by U.S. officials.

He receives a certificate signed by Secretary Condoleezza Rice — and $10,000 in cash.

Does anyone wonder why the GOP lost control of Congress and the President’s polling numbers are in the basement?

Michelle Malkin has more.

This is, after all, the same U.S. State Department that gave performance awards to bureaucrats responsible for the lax visa policies that paved the way for the 9/11 terrorists.
