Lost Faith in Bolton

Last night listening to Chris Matthew's stammering away again about the Bolton nomination (transcript should show up here soon) I was frustrated again that no one seems to draw the most logical conclusion from the congressional testimony.

Everyone seems to agree that Bolton berated a couple of analysts who couldn't support his dire warnings about Cuba's WMD program. His intention to have them fired remains in question.

What Bolton freely admits, however, is that he lost faith in these career public servants because they disagreed with him. Now everyone seems to agree that the analysts were correct and Mr. Bolton was wrong.

The direct result seems obvious. By his own standard, everyone should now have lost faith in John Bolton.

Plus, we don't have to have him fired. Just, please, don't give him the job.
