Angry walrus and potential presidential candidate -- who knows? -- John Bolton has a piece in today's Daily Beast, and it really is a dilly! It's all about how President Barack Obama's stewardship of the Iraq War -- which amounts to little more than adhering to the Status of Forces Agreement agreed to by former President George W. Bush in 2008 -- will "wreck" Iraq. Along the way, we get this wonderful rewrite of history:
"One of the main criticisms of President Bush's decision to overthrow Saddam Hussein was that the United States had attacked the wrong target. Iraq wasn't the real threat, said these critics, it was Iran. In fact, they argued, by eliminating Saddam -- who long advertised himself as the Arabs' defender against the Persians -- Bush had actually strengthened Iran, laying the foundation for Tehran to expand its influence throughout the Middle East."
