U.S. diplomat apologizes for Iraq policy critique

A senior U.S. diplomat apologized on Sunday for saying U.S. policy in Iraq has been marked by "arrogance" and "stupidity."

Alberto Fernandez, an Arabic-speaking diplomat in the U.S. State Department's bureau of Near Eastern affairs, issued a written apology about his interview with Al-Jazeera television.

"Upon reading the transcript of my appearance on Al-Jazeera, I realized that I seriously misspoke by using the phrase 'there has been arrogance and stupidity' by the U.S. in Iraq," said Fernandez, director of public diplomacy in State's Bureau of Near Eastern Affairs.
