John Bolton: Bill Clinton Close To Negotiating With Terrorists

Former United Nations Ambassador John Bolton is NOT impressed with former President Bill Clinton meeting with North Korea’s Kim Jong-Il.
The Obama administration is rewarding North Korea for its bad behavior by sending ex-president Bill Clinton to Pyongyang to win the release of two US journalists, the former US ambassador to the UN said Tuesday.

John Bolton, an outspoken hardliner in the previous administration of George W. Bush, told AFP that Clinton’s mission to Pyongyang undermines a number of public stands held by his own wife, US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

“It comes perilously close to negotiating with terrorists,” Bolton told AFP when asked about Bill Clinton’s trip to secure the release of journalists Laura Ling and Euna Lee.

The pair were sentenced in June to 12 years in a labor camp for an illegal border crossing and an unspecified “grave crime,” after they were detained by North Korean border guards on March 17 while working on a story.

“I think this is a very bad signal because it does exactly what we always try and avoid doing with terrorists, or with rogue states in general, and that’s encouraging their bad behavior,” Bolton said.

In a US television interview here on July 26, Secretary Clinton warned North Korea that even its traditional allies had turned against it and that the communist state’s rogue behavior will no longer “be rewarded.”

Bolton also scoffed the White House’s contention that Bill Clinton’s visit is “solely a private mission” when he said “this is a former president who is married to the secretary of state. There’s nothing private about this.”

Remember this was the same President who sent his Secretary of State Madeleine Albright to visit Kim Jong-Il with a Michael Jordan autographed basketball.

Exit question: What is this diplomatic gesture by Bill Clinton going to cost the United States?

Day By Day by Chris Muir

Chris, King Abdullah from Saudi Arabia has been around quite a long time now. Remember when President Bush was criticised for walking hand in hand with the Saudi potentate?

There was NO reason for President Obama to bow down to the Saudi leader unless he knows something more about America’s energy (spelled OIL) supply than the general public.

The President would be better to be listening to fellow Americans: Drill, Baby, Drill!

Ohio Republican George Voinovich to Retire – No Loss Here

Posted Posted in Geoge Voinovich, GOP, John Bolton
Voinovich Retirement

Sen. George Voinovich, R-Ohio, is seen in Lewis Center, Ohio. Voinovich is telling associates he intends to retire rather than run again in 2010, according to officials inside the party

Flap has no use for the “RETIRING” George Voinovich and so it is no great loss to the Republican Party for him to retire.

Ohio Republican George Voinovich is expected to announce Monday that he won’t seek reelection to the Senate in 2010.

A two-term senator, former governor and Cleveland mayor, Voinovich has been a political fixture in his state for decades. But recent press reports from his home state have indicated the 72-year-old lawmaker is considering retirement, and a person close to him told Politico that the announcement will come Monday.

Flap remembers the harsh treatment former United Nations Ambassador John Bolton received from Voinovich during his confirmation hearings.

Rumor is that either Republican Budget Director Rob Portman or former Congressman John Kasich will make a run for the office. Both would make great Senators, unlike Voinovich.

Good bye and good luck, Senator.

Don’t let the door hit you on the ass as you leave.

John Bolton and George Monbiot

George Monbiot blocked by security guards

No citizen’s arrest of John Bolton, the former United States Ambassador to the United Nations this evening. The obviously muddleheaded George Moonbat Monbiot was blocked by security guards from serving upon Bolton the “charge sheet.”

The attention seeking Monbiot achieved what he sought out to do: Prove that he is indeed a moron.

George Monbiot

Journalist George Monbiot is taking the law into his own hands by promisng to arrest former United States ambassador to the United Nations as an Iraq War criminal.

George Monbiot, the journalist and activist, is planning the action because he believes Mr Bolton is a “war criminal”.

He said he was surprised that Mr Bolton would be allowed to “swim through the politest of polite soirees – which is of course Hay.”

Mr Bolton, who was the American ambassador to the UN from August 2005 to January 2006, is due to talk at the Hay-on-Wye literary festival at 6.30pm on international relations.

Now, this should be good. The legal authorities in the United Kingdom say Monbiot’s actions are unlawful.

Flap wonders what Bolton will do?

Will he allow Monbiot take him into custody and then file a civil suit for assault and unlawful detainment? Or will Bolton simply resist the Moonbat Monbiot and punch him in the nose?

Flap bets the police will be there and escort Monbiot off of the premises.

Shame….would love to see Bolton punch his way out of the flap.
