John Bolton

As long as we’re talking about Mr. Bolton, Roger Simon mentions the lack of condemnation by the security council for the latest terrorist attack in Israel. Mr. Bolton had something written up but Algeria had a problem with urging Syria to close down the offices of the attackers that are open there.

“Ambassador Bolton, however, blamed Algeria for quashing the measure by objecting to a passage urging Syria to close offices of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad, which claims responsibility for the attack. “Other governments had questions about particular language. We were perfectly prepared to engage in discussions about constructive suggestions, but Algeria categorically refused to name Syria and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad,” he said.”

Doesn’t seem like to much to ask to me.
