MORE OF THAT SMART DIPLOMACY WE’RE ALWAYS HEARING ABOUT:

The top U.S. diplomat for Europe apologized Thursday for comments about the European Union that were — to put it lightly — undiplomatic.

“F— the E.U.,” Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs Victoria Nuland said in a private telephone call that was intercepted and leaked online. . . . State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki acknowledged that the recording was authentic and said Nuland had apologized to E.U. officials.

Well, I have to say that her analysis seems pretty spot-on.
