From yesterday’s Situation Room, but better late than never. Yeah, can you believe it? He actually thinks he made a mistake during his presidency. Fortunately, he only made one. You’ll find the revelation at the very end of the clip. Before that comes slab after slab of juicy red meat, beginning with a valentine to his friends on the right and segueing effortlessly into an apologia with Iran replete with reference to the “protective devices” they may or may not be building. Question: If these devices are simply a “protective” defensive response to U.S. aggression, how come their nuclear program pre-dates 9/11 by years?
Pay attention too to his strategy for countering the Iranian threat. It consists of two stages: (1) in the near term, diplomacy, (2) in the longer term, as they near possible completion of a bomb, stronger diplomacy. I kid you not.
