I've had this incredible video of John Bolton
getting grilled on the BBC over the Iraq war sitting on my servers for a while now and after the holiday I was quickly reminded of it by his new article with John Yoo
He flails away about how bad Saddam was in the past and how he should have been removed in 1991, which led to this response:
John, my relatives are Sunni, Christian and Shi'ite. They've been living under Saddam's dictatorship for thirty years. I've lost more relatives in the last four years, than under 30 years of Saddam. So, I don't think that you can tell me how dangerous Saddam's dictatorship was.
The good news is that the American people, who I love defeated Bush in the mid-term elections. That was really, really good news.
However, you still can't make up this garbage that appeared in the NY Times
No one could have predicted this would happen. John Yoo and John Bolton, in the NY Times, discuss the need to limit executive authority.
Up next, David Addington and Dick Cheney write in the Washington Post on the need to reject Unitary Executive theory. I knew these wankers would do this, I just didn’t expect it immediately and so brazenly.
Torture Yoo and John Bolton are embarrassments to this country. Whenever he appears on TV, he should be held up as the face of the complete and utter failure of the Bush administration and their Iraq war.(h/t Brian)
