John Bolton Gets NostalgicSeptember 30, 2007
I’m picking this for quote of the week, delivered by John Bolton while discussing what should be done about the Iran situation:
“If we were to strike Iran it should be accompanied by an effort at regime change … The US once had the capability to engineer the clandestine overthrow of governments. I wish we could get it back,” he said.
I’m not sure why he thinks of the exercise as a dead practice though. There’s word that Bush and Cheney at least making an effort at it in Iran currently.
And Johnnyboy, it isn’t particularly “clandestine” when you’re telling the media about it, is it?
