Walter Myers clashed with the State Department (updated)

Accused spy Walter Kendall Myers embarrassed the Bush administration in 2006 when he said U.S. officials typically "ignored" Britain and had a "very one-sided relationship" with Tony Blair. Myers said:
We typically ignore them and take no notice. We say, 'There are the Brits coming to tell us how to run our empire. Let's park them'. It is a sad business and I don't think it does them justice.
Myers made those comments during a lecture at the School of Advanced International Studies, part of Johns Hopkins University.
A State Department spokesman told London's Telegraph:
The views expressed by Mr Myers in no way represent the views of the United States government.
Political ideology, not money, evidently motivated Myers.

Update: In 2008, someone listed as Walter Myers in Ashburn, Va., donated $250 to Barack Obama's presidential campaign, Red Mass Group reports. Conservatives are having fun with this one.
