NYT’s Bret Stephens Compares Rex Tillerson to Pol Pot: Could be ‘Worst Secretary of State Ever’

‘I was a stern critic of John Kerry, but I think Tillerson really is up there as a nominee for worst Secretary of State ever’

EXCERPT:

STEPHENS: "Yeah. I was a stern critic of John Kerry, but I think Tillerson really is up there as a nominee for worst secretary of state ever." 
SCARBOROUGH: "Why is that?" 
STEPHENS: "Well, precisely because the State Department is also part of the machinery of government, and that machinery has to run in order for normal things to happen, like having relationships with foreign countries or having consular services for U.S. people, or for doing all the sorts of things the State Department has to do. Tillerson seems to be of a kind of Maoist school in which it’s like — maybe it’s Pol Pot."
