WaPo Rips Chas Freeman
Right now, on a small farm nestled in a lavender-scented misty nook at the foot of the Adirondacks, adorable little magical baby pigs are opening their doll-like eyes, shaking the dew from their feathers, and stretching their wings for the very first time. Word has come from the land of the Potomac. It’s time to fly!
The Washington Post has seen pit to publish what can only be described as a scathing editorial ripping Obama’s indefensible choice for chair of the National Intelligence Council, Charles Freeman, who announced he would withdraw his name from consideration and promptly accused the Jews of causing his abject failure as a human being and a politician. The juiciest bit:
What’s striking about the charges by Mr. Freeman and like-minded conspiracy theorists is their blatant disregard for such established facts. Mr. Freeman darkly claims that “it is not permitted for anyone in the United States” to describe Israel’s nefarious influence. But several of his allies have made themselves famous (and advanced their careers) by making such charges — and no doubt Mr. Freeman himself will now win plenty of admiring attention. Crackpot tirades such as his have always had an eager audience here and around the world. The real question is why an administration that says it aims to depoliticize U.S. intelligence estimates would have chosen such a man to oversee them.
Read the rest, it’s good times!
