"Diplomacy is where 'plausible deniability' and 'public relations' intersect. Ergo: "I knew there was NO chance of success, but I was instructed to play to the gallery, so I went through the motions with all the straightness of face I could muster!".

Of course, this is also rather obvious. Especially if you've been following Hillary Clinton's mad twirling on the international stage, and what her various righ hand men have been doing. Or not doing.
