If you missed it, I'll elaborate.
"I have a foreign policy. I just don’t happen to think it’s wise to tell the world what your foreign policy is...others would understand a policy in having no stated policy, a policy of strategic ambiguity. If you enumerate your policy, if you telegraph to the Soviets that the Strategic Defense Initiative is a ploy to get the Soviets to the bargaining table, the ploy is then made impotent.
Strategic ambiguity is still of value."
Replace Soviets with Neocons, and SDI with political positioning (Iran, Israel, Romney endorsement), and the picture becomes a bit clearer.
Of course, I could be imagining it. Then again, it's less far out than a lot of other "conspiracy theories" I often hear around here.
