Hat tip to Steve Benen.

Following up on self-acclaimed "nuclear expert" Rudy Giuliani's opinions on Obama's Nuclear Posture Review, we have this quote by Mackenzie Eaglen (Heritage Foundation):

The Nuclear Posture Review unnecessarily takes sovereign U.S. options off the table when responding to various types of chemical or biological attacks.

Americans intuitively understand the flaw in this approach. Special agent Jack Bauer of "24" had to thwart terrorists attempting to steal nerve gas. If this had actually occurred, the President should not tie one hand behind the nation's back when evaluating the appropriate response to defend American citizens.

The mind reels. Really? We're supposed to build national strategy based on fictional action dramas? Well, I suppose it's not unprecedented.
