So claim the Brits.
Britsh MPs visiting the Pentagon to discuss America's stance on Iran and Iraq were shocked to be told by one of President Bush's senior women officials: "I hate all Iranians."

And she also accused Britain of "dismantling" the Anglo-US-led coalition in Iraq by pulling troops out of Basra too soon.

The all-party group of MPs say Debra Cagan, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Coalition Affairs to Defence Secretary Robert Gates, made the comments this month.
I figured this was a case of British paranoia until I followed the link.

Oh my god.

I still think (hope?) they misheard her, but I can understand it now. If I were in the same room as that woman, I don't think I'd be paying attention to what she was saying either. I'd be too busy looking for something to defend myself with. :eek:
 
Wow, how do people like her even get hired? Instead of thanking our British Allies for the assistance they have given so far she threatens them for not willing to stay longer and reveals her own prejudices at the same time? How arrogant. And our government wonders why there has been a rise in Anti-American feeling throughout the world.
 
What a terrifying looking woman.....to match a terrifyingly ignorant statement...
 
Its a Daily(Hate)Mail article... which means I wouldn't touch it with a barge pole, but still... wouldn't surprise me.

I think the medal might be a Legion d'Honor but I'm not certain on that =/
 
Strangely enough, it's only the right wing press reporting this story. A quick search for "Debra Cagan" only throws up reports from The Mail on Sunday and The Daily Mail. No other paper has anything on her at the time of posting.

When I look at her picture, I understand she's hateful. Imagine seeing this ugly face every morning in your mirror :sad:
I guess that goes some way towards explaining her transsexual Nazi dominatrix look.
 
Sometimes we all do say ******ed things. Opps! I forgot that in CFC, there are no people who say ******ed things and are farrrr tooo great to say anything thoughtful beside bashing officials in high office.
 
I only hate Random Persians, not Iranians.

I would hope that our government officials would be better than the average CFC poster. When you're dealing with foreign and domestic politics in the real world, one needs to be polite and diplomatic to our own allies. This isn't very excusable.

If it was a mistake on her part then should would have apologized to the British MPs.

We certainly do say ******ed things all the time, but one really really hopes that an official mouthpiece of the US doesn't say ******ed things on the topic of the meeting with the official representatives of a very close ally while in that meeting.

Quite true. It can be a blemish on your reputation as a good-standing diplomat. But, I have to say that just because the comment is made, does not necessarily means that it can pose a problem such as Amadinejad's quote about the Holocaust and other silly nonsense. So, if I was to weigh which of the one is more rediculous, I would say that the silly Iranian President would be tipping the scale.

I don't know how can anyone can make an reasonable explanation of why an illogical statement being made by her having to be not true on her over-all viewpoint on diplomacy.

For damage control: I would fire her.

Except that we're not talking about Ahmadinejad, and we're not talking about "who made the worse comment ever", we're talking about this lady and her comments.

There are certain standards expected of you when you're doing your job. A diplomat making undiplomatic comments is a poor diplomat.

Yes.

Not to be silly. But, to me, what make a diplomat good in my country is a diplomat who follows the Administration's policy. So, therefore, maybe she really represent all of the people who favors aggressive diplomacy against the Iranians.
 
The picture (and award, it's the Hungarian Commander's Cross Order of Merit) came from here:

Oh, I see, she got an Order of Merit because she's the result of a human - monkey genetic cross!

Man, she's ugly!
