“Obama’s deal to lift sanctions on Iran and allow it to continue the purchase and production of enriched uranium is so bad that his own staff can’t even figure out how to spin for it. It’s so bad that Obama’s opponents don’t even need to craft their own arguments against it — they can just recycle the Obama administration’s arguments against the deal…”
James Rosen to State Department: Why’d it Take Nearly Two Years to Arrest a Benghazi Suspect Who Wasn’t Hiding?Posted: June 17, 2014
For Hot Air, Allahpundit writes: Via the Free Beacon, make sure to read Ed’s post earlier to understand just how openly Khattala, the jihadi nabbed by U.S. forces over the weekend, has been living in Libya since the Benghazi attack. He was a prime suspect from the very beginning; he gave multiple interviews to western media in the years since, all but taunting the White House to come pick him up. The criminal charges against him were filed more than nine months ago. Only this month, for some reason, did the military finally move in. How come?
Two possibilities. One: The political situation on the ground in Libya changed enough to make a U.S intervention possible. My theory of why Obama laid off initially was because he didn’t want the weak Libyan government to have to cope with a backlash from the local militias if American troops swooped in and kidnapped a big-name jihadi or two.
“I’m old enough to remember when U.S. counterterror developments, especially ‘terror alerts,’ were greeted by our liberal betters online as obviously political gambits by the Bush administration, designed to distract the public from more important matters.”
“Questioning the timing was standard practice for the lefty blogosphere circa 2006. Today, of course, it’s the height of crankery…”
As long as we could monitor Khattala and make sure he didn’t run, we could wait until the government was in a stronger position to make our move. Read the rest of this entry »

(contgrats MKH!) Hot Air
Loves it. Truly, madly, deeply. Can’t make it through a news cycle without reading every page. Generously linking to NYT articles, daily. Sometimes, multiple articles in a single day.
Unbeknownst to the rest of us, apparently, It’s a must-read paper! Can’t miss it. While many of us could go several weeks without reading a single word of the increasingly-irrelevant New York Times Editorial page, even several months, and not miss a thing, or even notice, the folks at Hot Air? Unthinkable! Hot Air staff would be in acute withdrawal, if they miss a single day.
Bravo, Times Editors. You’ve got fans in conservative media, some of them depend on you, and hang on every word! A toast to Brooks, Krugman, Friedman, security guards, janitors, everyone. To the whole NYT staff and management. Courageous talents, tastemakers, and trendsetters in Manhattan media, your input is truly needed. Keep up the good work.
