Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright delivered one Wednesday night, calling it "the greatest disaster in American foreign policy."
In a scorching presentation, Albright endorsed a central finding of a just-declassified intelligence report that concluded that the U.S. presence in Iraq was fueling global terrorism.
"I don't think creating more terrorists is going to make us safer," she told a crowd at the Lied Center on the University of Kansas campus. The event was sponsored by the Dole Institute of Politics.
On another topic, Albright said the U.S. military was so desperately short of soldiers that America's ability to respond to a sudden new crisis was seriously compromised.
She urged the administration to talk more to the North Koreans, saying the lack of communication invites problems.
