Abstract: James Q Wilson claimed once that "It is regrettable, for example, that any country must have a foreign office, since none can have a good one" and, to a degree, he was right. The problem of foreign affairs would be hard enough on its own, but there are also the inherent tradeoffs between desires like equity and flexibility or democracy and professionalism that are present in all government agencies. Yet the United States does have a foreign office and it is currently performing below even Wilson's low standard. The purpose of this paper is to examine why this has been happening and to recommend changes to ensure it happens less in the future.
