Haass: Is this Admin Even Beginning To Be Ready to Handle a Real Crisis?
HAASS: "The other thing we left out was health care and all these dynamics going on in Washington just consumed by personnel issues, consumed with political issues. But the world doesn’t say, 'Okay, we’re going to give you six months or a year to time out, America.' The world doesn’t go on pause. What’s so interesting, think about it, Joe, we have yet to have a real international crisis. All the crises of this administration are essentially self-generated. But they’re coming. I don’t know whether the first one will be an Iran/Saudi war, I don’t know if it will be North Korea, I don't know if it will be something with Russia, could be Venezuela given the vote yesterday. But real crises are coming down the pike. The real question for us, is this administration even beginning to be ready to handle a real crisis?"
