Eagleburger: Jackass Extraordinaire

Eagleburger is a Wisconsin product--I once rode a YX flight from DC when he was also on the plane (so was the BowTie Senator from Illinois, and Herb Kohl.)

But Eagleburger was a jackass.

For those who believed the Cold War should be won, Novak’s Sonnenfeldt Doctrine column was a gift that kept on giving. Eight years later I was director of the Reagan Administration’s Voice of America when top State Department official Lawrence Eagleburger summoned me to his office. He was enraged by tough VOA editorials damning Polish strongman Gen. Wojciech Jaruzelski as being “Soviet imposed” on the people of Poland.
