Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

Lying Liars

Josh Marshall basically points out that Benjamin Netanyahu is pretty much an habitual liar when it comes to Iran.  His security community disagrees with his conclusions and has suggested that he has fabricated evidence.  Other sources support this.

More evidence of his propensity to lie?  He says he didn't mean to "disrespect Obama."  He just meant to come and meddle in the domestic politics of the United States before the one body that has zero foreign policy powers in the Constitution.  His assertion that he doesn't want to meddle in American domestic politics is so blatantly false, that you have to be slightly impressed by the chutzpah.  He hired a GOP operative to be his ambassador, who then arranged for this speech right before the Israeli elections and to take advantage of GOP energy.

I really would like to see Obama cut his nuts by allowing targeted sanctions to pass the UN.
