......Kissinger defends Rumsfeld on Late Edition, describing the secretary as a distinguished public servant and saying, in his opinion, that the problems with the war in Iraq do not reflect poor planning on the part of the Pentagon.

That's good enough for me, but not for Wolf Blitzer. OK, it's Blitzer's job to push guys like Kissinger. It's hard enough for Kissinger to convey his thoughts through the thick German accent. It didn't help matter any that Blitzer kept interrupting him with different versions of the same question, each one containing the phrase "war on the cheap."

Kissinger's bottom line on Iran: It was tough enough conducting foreign policy with just one other nuclear power. If there's going to be a proliferation of nuclear power, the U.S. best be ready.
