Albright Critical of Bush's Foreign Policy While in Little Rock

SEPTEMBER 27, 2006 - Posted at 4:33 p.m. CDT

 

LITTLE ROCK, AR - In an appearance in Little Rock today, former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright criticized the Bush administration's foreign policy as a "mess."  Albright says the White House is ignoring other international problems by focusing solely on the Middle East.

About 1,200 people turned out at the Statehouse Convention Center to hear Albright speak.  She served as Secretary of State and as Ambassador to the United Nations under President Bill Clinton.  Today's appearance was sponsored by the University of Arkansas Clinton School of Public Service and the Clinton Foundation.

In her speech, Albright criticized Bush's foreign policy team and said the White House was practicing ABC, or "anything but Clinton" as their policy.  Albright says Bush should have relied on Clinton as a negotiator in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and with North Korea.
