“Republican Sens. John McCain and Lindsey Graham were vocal critics of the administration’s messaging after the Benghazi attacks, but on Friday, they issued a laudatory statement about Victoria Nuland”

Victoria Nuland

Spouse: Robert Kagan

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/americas/7370992.stm

Robert Kagan is an adviser to Senator John McCain and his idea that the United States should continue to take a strong, and possibly a confrontational, role in world affairs accords with McCain’s own views.

Kagan’s brother Frederick was instrumental in persuading President Bush to reinforce US forces in Iraq with last year’s “surge”, against the advice of the Iraq Study Group of “wise men” at the time. The surge was and is a policy supported by John McCain and one of the reasons for his political success.

Obama taps Victoria Nuland for assistant secretary
Friday, May 24, 201

EXCERPT

Following the announcement, Republicans on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, which is tasked with confirming her nomination, remained mum on her nomination, though a committee source speaking to The Cable said there is “very little chance” the nomination won’t trigger a fight.

Nuland, however, is something of an awkward target for Republicans. From 2003 to 2005, she served as principal deputy national security advisor to Vice President Dick Cheney. Her husband is prominent neoconservative writer Robert Kagan, co-founder of the Project for the New American Century and an advisor to Mitt Romney’s failed presidential bid.

really good post. Appears McCain ,once again, finds himself in over his head. Kinda like at Annapolis, or piloting or as a senator, or as a presidential candidate, or in a dirt person commercial etc, etc.

The pattern of cronyism gives us this milktoast, inane, below average “leadership” in Washington.

Voters should shun these idiots with extreme prejudice.

Nuland is a worker bee. She would only do what Clinton told her to do.

Hillary is the target, not Nuland.
