"I hate all Iranians."

So says top Pentagon official Debra Cagan, according to the Daily Mail:

"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.
As usual a Pentagon spokesman tried to cover up the fact that DOD has yet another racist on its books: "She doesn't speak that way," said an official.
However, "when The Mail on Sunday spoke to four of the six MPs, three confirmed privately that she made the remark and one declined to comment. The other two could not be contacted."
There is obviously a truth problem in this Administration, they're all compulsive liars - hardly surprising really considering they're also murderous criminals with the blood of over a million Iraqis on their hands.
More on Cagan: This woman definitely gets around. From State to Defense. Some of the positions she's held in the past:
1996 Senior Coordinator for Nuclear and Nonproliferation Policy, Bureau of European and Canadian Affairs, Department of State, United States
1998 Director of Policy and Regional Affairs for Russia and the Independent States at the State Department
2001 office director in the State Department’s Bureau of European and Eurasian Affairs (where she was known to “play above her pay grade.”)
2005 Political Advisor to Supreme Allied Commander Transformation

Talking of pay grades, she's obviously earning good money. Last year she bought a house in the Washington area at 21ST ST. S., 1110 Arlington for $1.16 million. Not bad for a civil servant...
NB. The photo shown above that appeared in the Daily Mail article was actually taken by the Daily Mail from the website of the Embassy of Hungary in Washington DC, and what some commentators have called a "martial cross", is in fact the Commander's Cross Order of Merit that was awarded to Ms. Cagan by the Hungarians. I'm no fan, but fair's fair.
