You are referring to John Bolton, right? Yes, I was disheartened that the President gave up on him. If we absolutely must have a UN Ambassador I could think of no better one.
"Arabists" anywhere irritate me to no end. I just can't see supporting groups that won't even recognize Israel's right to exist.
Yes, Bolton is a good example. And there have been a few others with similar backgrounds.
I didn't mean to sound too negative. I think you have done excellent work with this exposure. We can't afford to give up trying to make things better.
I have known a few top people in the CIA (which they didn't talk about themselves but I happened to know), and for the most part they appear to be patriots.
