“I support the drone program. . . This is not an appropriate place for this.”

 

— Henry Kissinger to a Roll Call reporter when asked about drone bombing at National Defense University Foundation’s formal dinner honoring former National Security Advisor Brent Scowcroft at the downtown Ritz-Carlton Wednesday night. The former secretary of state stayed on message later when presenting his friend with his award, we’re told: “A journalist asked me if there’s something wrong with our country that we’re not producing a lot of Scowcrofts anymore. My response was. . .  we only have one Scowcroft.”
