In defense of Condie

Your Secretary of State speaking before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, as quoted in the Washington Post:

"It's bad policy to speculate on what you'll do if a plan fails when you're trying to make a plan work."

I found the quote thanks to the fine folks at TPM's Election Central, where Condie, as you might imagine, is taking quite a beating in the comments section.

But in her defense she's quite correct, speculation on the possibility of failure is probably not best done while trying to implement a plan.

It should have been done before the plan was implemented in the first place.

Of course that hasn't happened either.
