I have to admit I was worried there for a little bit that conservatives would actually resist the temptation to draw a parallel between the release of the journalists from North Korea and Chamberlain’s appeasement of Hitler in World War II. More tomorrow, but please rest assured, all is still right in the world of conservative wingnuts. This comes from the foreign policy experts at Investor’s Business Daily.
Far from private, this has White House fingerprints all over it. As the AP noted: “State media said Clinton apologized on behalf of the women and relayed President Barack Obama’s gratitude.”
Groveling, anyone? Kim now knows the current U.S. leader can be blackmailed — if he didn’t know it before. That’s what made President Clinton so appropriate for this mission. It was from Clinton that Kim first learned this lesson.
In 1994, recall, Clinton sent former President Carter — see a pattern? — to North Korea to negotiate that country’s denuclearization. Carter returned with a deal similar in its sycophancy and cynicism to the one Neville Chamberlain brought back from Munich.
This sets the bar pretty high. Thanks, Investors Business Daily! Come down and collect your prize!
