“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,” [Alberto] Fernandez said in the statement. “This represents neither my views nor those of the State Department. I apologize.”

I apologize,” said Fernandez, and continued: “what I meant to imply, of course, was that the arrogance and stupidity was not limited to Iraq; we’ve seen it in Afghanistan and even right here in the United States.
