Thought of the Day

The Russians aren’t friendly at all! Kerry rushes to the Security Council to give their mean old ambassador a piece of his mind. He condemns “in the strongest possible terms” (in Obama’s diplomacy, the strongest possible term was “in the strongest possible terms”) “an outrageous, sustained two-hour attack directed at a fully authorized humanitarian mission.” He gives the ambassador the hairy eyeball and says it again: “Fully authorized!” This is evidently the dispositive fact for the secretary of state. If the U.N. had only half-authorized the convoy—well, that would be a different thing .  .  .
