Jim Lobe, one of the best international affairs correspondents who has resisted the trend towards homogenization in his sector’s coverage, has launched a blog, and he has a cool expose on a neocon retreat being planned for the Bahamas on May 30.
The conference is titled “Confronting The Iranian Threat: The Way Forward.” Perhaps they’ll all get burned CDs of McCain singing “Bomb Bomb Bomb — Bomb Bomb Iran” as conference favors.
Take a look at the reported list of attendees — but be sure to distinguish between invited and confirmed. I don’t believe that US Ambassador to the UN Zal Khalilzad would dare attend this meeting.
Forget the token liberal at the party? Where is the token realist?
Stay tuned for a short expose on one of Vice President Cheney’s staff who is actively engaged in trying to trigger a hot war with Iran.
