Meant to post this over the weekend, from Peggy Noonan’s latest column:
Everything’s frozen. When you ask, “What is the appropriate U.S. response to ISIS?” half the people in Washington answer: “ George W. Bush broke Iraq and ISIS was born in the rubble. There would be no ISIS if it weren’t for him.” The other half answer: “WhenBarack Obama withdrew from Iraq, ISIS was born in the vacuum. There would be no ISIS without him.”
These are charges, not answers, and they are getting us nowhere. Bitterness and begging the question are keeping us from focusing on what is. We’re frozen in what was….
Of course, that’s SOP in Washington in this generation.
Be sure to follow the link, and see King Abdullah all dressed up like a combat soldier, to let you know he’s serious…
