Just the kind'a guy I want representing the USA at the United Nations

The latest on John Bolton's nomination to be the US ambassador to the United Nations:
John R. Bolton flew to Europe in 2002 to confront the head of a global arms-control agency and demand he resign, then orchestrated the firing of the unwilling diplomat in a move a U.N. tribunal has since judged unlawful, according to officials involved.

A former Bolton deputy says the U.S. undersecretary of state felt Jose Bustani "had to go," particularly because the Brazilian was trying to send chemical weapons inspectors to Baghdad. That might have helped defuse the crisis over alleged Iraqi weapons and undermined a U.S. rationale for war.
Yup. Let's get him through the process so he can go to New York and continue on with his partisan, parochial, steamrolling behaviors.

  1. I agree Peter...Only I think if you scratch this one you might find a cover-up of Big Oil trying to control the region. Follow the money. Where is a good Linda Lovelace when you need one.
