The hear, speak, see no evil appeasement team of the Clinton administration...
The Secretary of Defense, the President, the Secretary of State and the National Security Advisor didn't hear, see, speak of, or find anything they considered important enough to keep them from making a reckless deal with the be-deviled dictator of N. Korea who starved 2 million of his own people---to build a million-man military and nuclear weapons. Not smart move, that.
They didn't follow Ronald Reagan's shared wisdom, "trust, but verify." Madame Secretary Allbright and Kim Jong Il toasted the "trust" part. But the Clinton appeasement crowd didn't bother to "verify." And Clinton was too busy canoodling to care. Then, they passed the growing danger on to GW Bush's administration.
Today, they criticize Bush for not repeating their colossal folly. To their dismay, Bush won't wade into the treacherous waters of appeasement and bribery of a known violator of every treaty and agreement he's ever entered into.
Clinton's been there, done that. "W" ain't goin' there.
