In Blinders

More low-hanging fruit from The Corner:
On Blunders [John J. Miller]
Herman's essay on Suez raises an interesting question: What have been the biggest foreign policy blunders in American history? The Suez response and the War of 1812 are both very good candidates. I might add the failure to grab more of Mexico in the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo, the failure to make Cuba a state in the 19th century, and possibly Wilson's performance at Versailles.

Intriguing question. Hmmm...the biggest foreign policy blunders in American history...

Dunno. But I'm pretty sure the Clenis was in on most of them.

Roger's readers, can you best the geniuses over at The Corner and name the biggest foreign policy blunder in American history? Something a bit more recent than the War of 1812?

(Hint: it started near Waco.)
