I’m surprised Bush’s PR assault on Iran has jumped the shark so soon. People are going to be, rightfully, offended and dismayed at such an obvious lunge for Americans’ rhetorical jugulars. But there you have it.
On Nightline Bolton said, "Just like September 11, only with nuclear weapons this
time, that’s the threat. I think that is the threat." This is coming from the same guy who was screaming a few years ago that Cuba has biological weapons and is ready to use them on us.
I think this Administration’s transparent ploy to put one of their chief WMD cranks in the UN to shout "j’accuse" at the Iranians is going to arrive on Americans’ ears with a resounding thud. They simply have no credibility left to burn. And not even pulling the trusty old 9/11 card will win this hand.
