Nice going clown.
Iran's foreign minister walked out of a dinner of diplomats where he was seated directly across from Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, ostensibly because a female violinist entertaining the gathering was dressed too revealingly.
"I don't know which woman he was afraid of, the woman in the red dress or the secretary of state," State Department spokesman Sean McCormack said Friday, regarding the actions of Iran's Manouchehr Mottaki.
Insults like these might appeal to the rabid nutjobs who believe that we are in a war with Islam, but they do nothing to promote the interests of our country and help us succeed in the war on terror. McCormack shouldn't apologize; he should be fired.
Updated: Reuters reports that Mottaki walked out before Rice arrived.
