Team Bush in the Middle East

Another little item I found in that same Newsweek I mentioned in the last post.

Both the Israelis and Mahmoud Abbas, Palestinian president, warned the Bush administration about upcoming elections because of the growing political clout of Hamas. Then Hamas won in an open and fair election won.

[Secretary of State Condi Rice said] "Nobody saw it coming." The line could describe much of what has resulted from George W. Bush's efforts to transform the world.

I especially like that 'nobody saw it coming' line.
