Joshua Micah Marshall and I teamed up together a couple years ago and had a co-branded “Bolton Watch” website during much of the battle over John Bolton’s failed confirmation bid to serve as Ambassador of the United States to the United Nations. We were among those who helped beat Bolton then.
But he’s back — and Josh has a great video clip on Bolton and some of what he’s been saying while promoting his new book.
But a reader of TWN just sent a note to Josh Marshall stating:
Your friend Steve Clemons will probably write you to tell you that Bolton’s a “pugnacious nationalist in the Jesse Helms mold” rather than a neocon.
I just wanted to commend the reader, BR, who is right on that front — but am still glad that Josh Marshall is shining a spotlight on the continuing trouble that John Bolton is trying to stir up.
