John Bolton Wants America To Fail


John Bolton–never-confirmed right-wing nutjob Bush-appointed ambassador to the UN–is concerned with Bill Clinton’s visit to Pyongyang to try to secure the release of two Americans being held by the North Koreans:

While the United States is properly concerned whenever its citizens are abused or held hostage, efforts to protect them should not create potentially greater risks for other Americans in the future. Yet that is exactly the consequence of visits by former presidents or other dignitaries as a form of political ransom to obtain their release. [h/t Sadly, No!]

Criticizing a former president while he is on foreign soil EMBOLDENS THE ENEMY and ENDANGERS THE TROOPS! Why does Bolton HATE AMERICA?

    What an idiot. Clinton is coming back with those 2 hostage/journalists. Mission Accomplished, bitches.

  2. BB says

    Seriously. Would Bolton rather the 2 Americans die a slow death in North Korean prisons?
    Why does he hate Americans is the key question. He prolly loves America. Just not Americans.

    No, the evil goatfucker only like the America of his imagination, the one that never existed, where good, white, english speaking folks live in a rural meritocracy and all of our enemies bend to our will out of respect to our superior might.

    Isn’t he another Bush wannabe who never served anything except himself? Or did Bush wannabe him?

    He is employed by Kirkland, Ellis law in D.C. – the rightest of the righties.

    Thanks for this notice.

    I found this on his triumphs in the wikipedia.

    Between 1997 and 2000, Bolton worked pro bono as an assistant to James Baker in Baker’s capacity as Kofi Annan’s personal envoy to the Western Sahara.[20] Before joining the George W. Bush administration, Bolton was Senior Vice President for Public Policy Research at the American Enterprise Institute, a conservative think tank.

    During the Reagan and George H. W. Bush administrations, he worked in several positions within the State Department, the Justice Department and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID).

    His Justice Department position required him to advance Reagan administration positions, including opposition[citation needed] to financial reparations to Japanese-Americans held in World War II-era internment camps; the insistence of Reagan’s executive privilege during William Rehnquist’s chief justice confirmation hearings, when Congress asked for memos written by Rehnquist as a Nixon Justice Department official; the framing of a bill to control illegal immigration as an essential drug war measure; and, issues related to the investigation of the Iran-Contra affair.

    He worked as the interim Permanent US Representative to the UN from August 2005 until December 2006 on a recess appointment, and resigned in December 2006 when his recess appointment would have ended and he was unable to gain confirmation from the Senate.

    Bolton is currently a Senior Fellow at the American Enterprise Institute (AEI) and of counsel to the law firm Kirkland & Ellis, in their Washington D.C. office. He is also involved with a broad assortment of other conservative think tanks and policy institutes, including the Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs (JINSA), Project for the New American Century (PNAC), Institute of East-West Dynamics, National Rifle Association, US Commission on International Religious Freedom, and the Council for National Policy (CNP).

    Oh, him! He was on the BBC’s special progamme on the night of the US elections. I stayed up watching until 6am our time because his smacked-arse scowl of affronted losertude was so, so beautiful.
