Comments on the news report that “Rudd's secret spiked essay for Foreign Affairs journal”, The Australian, 2/06/2009, http://www.theaustralian.news.com.au/story/0,25197,25573720-601,00.html
There is a news report on the Australian today on Rudd's unpublished essay related to his APC idea. The following two sources can serve as references:
Presumably, Rudd in that essay would have elaborated on the idea more fully. But since it is not published yet, I don't know what his main arguments are. Anyone interested has to wait for its publication, if it ever has that day.
I just want to quote a short paragraph from the second report:
According to sources familiar with the essay it was considered by some at the magazine to be “overly bureaucratic”.
So, is Rudd a stateman or a bureaucrat? You be the judget.
