President Bush called Afghan president Hamid Karzai last week to apologize for the way he was treated by a few senators, reports the Washington Post. One of the prime offenders was Democratic senator Barbara Boxer, a dependably rude person. Another was Republican senator Chuck Hagel, who scolded a man with one of the toughest jobs in the world as if he were a deputy assistant secretary. Hagel keeps berating the Bush administration for not being multilateral enough. Looks like he doesn’t know too much about diplomacy himself.
