I was going to ask whether Barack Obama’s vetters had taken a vacation.
But that would presume that they ever actually showed up for work.
The latest nightmare Obama nomination? Charles Freeman, the White House pick “to serve as chairman of the group that prepares the U.S. intelligence community’s most sensitive assessments, according to three congressional aides.” He’s got a rather, um, colorful history of Israel-bashing, America-bashing views and glaring conflicts of interests due to his Saudi and Chinese ties. Yet, the White House has only now decided to vet his record.
Frank Gaffney sums up this latest botch in four words: Garbage in, garbage out.
Epigram of this administration.
